Patinas are used on top of Swellegant Metal Coatings and to create an effect that makes your pieces appear to be aged and rustic! You can make the metals look tarnished or aged by applying Swellegant Patinas over the Metal Coating! These rich colored patinas will give your beautiful design that wow factor! This is a traditional patina product so it can also be used on raw brass or plated metals. *Patinas work thorough a naturally occurring oxidation process that occurs when a Patina meets metal! Patinas can be used on both real metal and metal coated pieces. Apply by spraying, dabbing or brushing on to the Metal Coatings painted surface – this is what activates the Patina causing it to ‘bloom’ over a process of a few minutes and gradually change in color and expand as more time passes. Because the oxidation process occurs naturally the process will always yield slightly different results, bringing that true uniqueness to your work as it would be in nature! Enjoy the unexpected, and just see what happens!
Patina’s can be applied with a brush or put the patina in a spray bottle and mist it onto the piece. Swellegant products are safe to use in a home studio or work area, please take normal safety precautions as you would with any spray. This patina has low to no odor and washes up with soap and warm water.
The Green Gold/Verdigris Patina add a green bloom to brass, copper and bronze metals and a rust oxidation to iron. This is a real patina and actually oxidizes metal (both real metal and metal coated pieces!) Patina’s can be painted on with a brush or put the patina in a spray bottle and mist it onto the piece. These patinas react differently depending on which metal they are dabbed on. Experiment with different metals for all kinds of different looks!
The Darkening Patina will antique your piece, adding a dark brown-black oxidation to the textures, lines and crevices. Darkening Patina darkens all metals and reacts very quickly. This is a real patina and actually oxidizes metal (both real metal and metal coated pieces!) Patina’s can be painted on with a brush or put the patina in a spray bottle and mist it onto the piece.
