Patina (aging process)

“Patina” is an Italian word that refers to how dark and old looks the frame. Apart from dark gold, the age of a Renaissance frame is determined by a few cracks and tiny broken parts all around the sides. For this purpose, our gilder hits its surfaces with some kinds of stones.

Also, the wormholes are simulated as well, and you will be able to notice them by analyzing deeply the pictures above. The presence of wormholes does not indicate activity within or a recent flight of beetles. Remember that they were faked by us to specifically age the frame.
