Here's a close up of the top. The finish is an antique bronze look. After priming, a bronze colored top coat is applied. After that has cured, a darker color is applied mostly in the details, then before it is allowed to cure it is blended with solvent on a brush, that thins and allows the darker color to become a "wash" in effect. It will run into the recesses and just soften the look of the darker contrasting color.

And a close up of the bottom of the door. This wraps up this project and I hope that this gives you some insight into the "lost wax" approach to architechural metalwork. In the next addition to the process section I'll show you how the "blue foam" process evolves....
