Corso on old patina

Through the years I’ve realized that the peculiarity of the old patina technique is made not only by a mix of woodcraft skills and colors but also by an unity of both of them that’s able to express a strong sentiment.

I recognize to the old patina technique and woodcraft an equal value.

During this class I’ll teach you everything I’ve learned in 26 years of career, like unique materials, the preparation of natural traditional glues, gesso and so on.


Corso Patine Antiche


You’ll learn how to mix gesso and natural glues, how to crack gesso and how to obtain a cracklé effect.

I’ll show you how to prepare the old tempera with eggs to paint your piece of furniture.



During the Corso on patina’s second phase you’ll learn how to create a realistic patina using coffee grounds and husk of nuts, and to focalize your mind on your creativity in order to reach a final result that won’t be in contrast between who you are and what you’re doing.


I don’t have the presumption to disguise new things as old and I don’t want to do that. Patina Style is a key of interpretation made with all my work experience and other deeper things.

Everyone of us has a different hand: I’ll teach you not only techniques and recipes but also I’ll help you to show your singularity.

Only being yourself you’ll realize that you have an immense creativity’s repertoire and you’ll understand the real secret of this job: follow your spontaneous side, your inner child that can express itself only in its freedom.

The secret of every job is strongly connected to your soul’s intimacy and can show itself only through the love that you put in what you’re doing.
