Dye-Oxides are colorants that allow you to add more colors to your projects! These Dye-Oxides are a patina too, in that they soak into the metal and into the patinas to become part of the piece, not just a color that lays on top. They are intensely colored, but transparent, which means you can add them to create just the whisper of color or you can heavily layer them to create an intense tint. You can add the dyes right on top of the Metal Coatings and/or the Patinas. Add one, add two, add all 6 colors! GET CREATIVE – That’s what its all about! Let the dye soak in. Check the color in 5 to 10 minutes – you may need to add more dyes to reach the intensity you want.
Drip, Dab, Brush to apply! Wipe off any excess. Once dry follow up with a sealant! So why do you need this…. they are fantastic to add extra color and depth to your projects, do you have to have this with Swellegant…well no, not to make the Swellegant system work, but it is a nice addition!
