Finishing Stag Leap – The Patina May 7, 2010 Patrick Kipper prepares to patina Stag Leap. It will take most of the day to complete. Pat has been working with Tim for over 20 years. Pat layers on the chemicals that will oxidize with with the conditions of the atmosphere. A torch is used to heat the surface of the bronze. Stag Leap is looking good and almost finished. WOW PAT! That is a great job! Stag Leap looks AWESOME! Stag Leap sits crated up at Shipper Supply in Loveland, waiting to be trucked to Little Rock, Arkansas to be installed.
