About the Author

Patrick Kipper s artistic reputation with art foundries, sculptors, galleries and museums in the art of bronze patination and fine art conservation is internationally known and respected. Beginning his artistic carrier after a short stint in teaching philosophy on the university level, Patrick began working in the art of patination at an art foundry in Loveland, Colorado, where he developed many patina concepts and artistic techniques that are now used around the world today. Moving up in the ranks at an art foundry and learning all aspects of the fine art casting process, Mr. Kipper left the confines of an art foundry to begin his own carrier concentrating on bronze sculpture patination and fine art conservation. As a result of over 35 years of experience in this unique fine art of bronze coloration, Mr. Kipper s immense interest in this art form has taken him not only from coast to coast, but has allowed him to travel to many other parts of the world where he has been most fortunate to work with and learn from master patineurs of the classical and contemporary styles. Patrick presently lectures and demonstrates the art of patinas both nationally as well as internationally, at major institutes of art in the academic as well as private sectors. He also maintains his patina and conservation studio in Loveland, Colorado, where on occasion, he still gives workshops that, in the past have drawn people from all over the world.

Patrick Kipper's book is the best source to learn contemporary hot patina techniques. For the artist, it is an exellent reference of patina color. For the professional, it contains valuable chemical combinations and application techniques.

Although I've never taken any of Kipper's workshops, I know many people who have. They all tell me that he's a patina guru. I've been doing patinas for only a few years, and am by no means an expert, but I use this book like a bible. Kipper's language is clear and concise, and his recipies are understandable. You may not get the result you want on the first try, but you do have something to work from. There's some great color plates that show you examples of the recipies. I find this book invaluable and I consult it almost every day. If you are delving into the world of bronze patina you definately need this book.

Excellent book for the professional or one just learning about patinas. Not only does it give explanation of what materials to use and how, it illustrates the result.

If you know nothing or even if you are an experienced patineur you will learn something with this book. The photos of the various patinas are extremely helpful as they are shown on the exact same surface in every photo. I am not a patineur and have not tried the patina recipes listed in the book. My foundry is impressed with the book and is to purchase its own copy.
