The patina is the coloring of the tiger.  The color is created by using chemicals and heat.  It is a very dark cold and long day/evening when we figure out the patina. Once we decide on the color it will take several days to complete the patina.

The sculpture now complete must now received a patina
After sandblasting the sculpture it begins to receive the appropriate chemicals to give it the color that it needs. 
The patina brings the tiger to life. I am not sure if it is exhaustion or creativity, but I begin to shed a tear when I see it come together.
