Remember this image? Well, it looks like even 3D models aren’t immune from the ravages of time!

For a much more long term project, I’ve been playing around with some aged materials. This nice copper patina is the end result. The basic material for this image came from, but I added a bit of my own nodes to it for a more customized look. Mostly the colour and the shiny reflections on the copper untouched by the patina.

I especially like how the effect makes it look like the model has proper eyebrows (a happy accident).
