Question
I've purchased some stained glass angels wrapped in 'hobby cane', different from the traditional copper foil and lead cane.  The finish on the hobby cane has a bronze colour - very nice.  Is this a patina finish??  

tks in advance,
cheers Sue

Answer
Hi Sue,

I've never seen hobby came any color than the usual lead color. I'm assuming it has been plated with a bronze finish. Many people have lead and foiled pieces plated either silver, gold or bronze. There is no patina that would turn lead a bronze color.

Regards,
Sue
