Finishing after patina

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I am new to the forum but I have been following you a lot ... I would like to ask this question ... I am finishing an antiqued instrument and after having given the patina (based on carbon black, umber and raw linseed oil  ) I'm undecided about how to finish, if simply with the same oil paint or shellac?  Thank you so much everyone ...

Shellac will seal this in place.

on we go,
