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 BlenderArtists.com, 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).
