Instant patina

Well it's about time! I finally concocted my beeswax mixture to seal my Hearst Castle kitchen photos, mounted on artist panels. It's my first attempt at this medium outside of a class two months ago. They will hang proudly in my own kitchen. The beeswax was filtered but not bleached, giving a yellow patina hue to the classic vintage utensils and fixtures. When I was shooting these I couldn't stop thinking about how many times that kitchen was messed up and cleaned up after all those gala events. He had two beer taps in that kitchen as well. One main hub for refrigeration.
