    Decided to try the boiled egg forced patina method on my copper clone v1 from stealthvape. It's a really simple method where you boil some eggs put em in a sealed bag, smash em up and stick your mod in. Oh yeah don't forget to put Vaseline on your threads. Leave it over night and in the morning it should be done. Rinse off all the egg and clear coat. The egg method is a more subtle patina than the ammonia. Here's the pics.

    These pictures don't do it justice. Try it if you've got an old copper mod knocking about

    Soaking a mod in boiled egg, I've seen it all now :) It looks awesome, sort of a bit like walnut

    Yea I know I did think to myself "what am I doing?" And the misses gave me a look like I've lost it. Really happy with the results and I was worried the storm trooper would come off but it hasn't :)

    In not keen on copper or brass mods! BUT I do really like the way Urs has turn'd out, I may have 2 get a brass mod 1 day & use this boiled egg method.
    I do take it it will also work with brass?

    Do you need a gas mask when you open it up the following morning?

    Works on copper or brass, egged up my brass stingray with the same method as bakedclouds over the weekend, yet to clearcoat it but puts an end to polishing the darn things every few days ;)
