52 WC – Patina / Verdigris

week 4 – Verdigris (or Patina)

The name verdigris comes from the Middle English vertegrez, from the Old French verte grez, an alteration of vert-de-Grèce (“green of Greece”). The modern French spelling of this word is vert-de-gris (“green of grey”).

Verdigris is the common name for a green pigment obtained through the application of acetic acid to copper plates or the natural patina formed when copper, brass or bronze is weathered and exposed to air or seawater over a period of time. It is usually a basic copper carbonate, but near the sea will be a basic copper chloride.

52 WC – Pink

week 33 – Pink

The colour pink is named after the flowers called pinks, flowering plants in the genus Dianthus. The name derives from the frilled edge of the flowers — the verb “to pink” dates from the 14th century and means “to decorate with a perforated or punched pattern” (possibly from German pinken, “to peck”). While the word “pink” was first used as a noun to refer to a colour in the 17th century, the verb “pink” continues to be reflected today in the name of the scissors that cut a zig-zagged line known as pinking shears.
