    I dont get to claim the stripping, stippling or patina on this one as I bought it this way, but I think she's beautiful.

    Is this your version of a forced patina :D! Love user pics. Think that's why I'm loving the patina so much, it shows it's being used. Great pics, hope they don't want their car back :).

    Can't find the pic at the moment but I did a forced patina on one of my ratmandus. Used mustard and it left a wicked cool pattern.

    Yeah. I think we need a name for the wear on coated blades. I like "Beatina".

    That Tali-wacker looks sweet. The pattern came out awesome.

    Who would have thought, plain old paper towel and balsamic vinegar. I love it!
