To my great joy the family crest of Duitgenius was polychromed in full glory, which means painted in multiple colours. Rómulo has had quite a bit of work doing all the, guilding, base coats, silver plating and several coats of colour.

He added depth to the colour by several layers of paint with accents in a slightly different hue. He also added a patina to the layer of silver, giving the relief more visual depth.

For those who haven't followed the story before: I carved a family crest in limestone for a client, which after that went to Rómulo Döderlein de Win at or polychromed them as it's termed by him.
