The Patina World Championship 2023 was a great turnout with some cool competition and some fun patinas! If you read the finalist’s post on the contestants it will give you the info you need on the people who participated. For now, I will leave you with a short video on the progress they go through during the competition and some imagery on the final results and the contestants.
I always enjoy seeing what they come up with and it was a great event this time around, as it always is. I loved that Alberto Suastez went for it all by doing a patina unlike any other we have seen. Oftentimes, the patinas can come out looking somewhat similar, which makes them hard to judge! I can only hope that in subsequent years we see some more unique, bold, and even aggressive looks as I think that is the beauty of patina.
Thanks to all who sent in for the contest and we look forward to seeing new entrants next year! Start practicing!
