The Swellegant Patinas allow you to age, rust, give a patina to to Metal Coatings. It's not a tint, but a true reaction between metal partciles in the Metal Coating and the Patina wich will create a very natural oxidization and beautiful ageing.
Patinas are available with different effects:
Patinas work better on moist surfaces. Before using Patina, you have to put a thin layer of Metal Coating if your creation is already dry.
To apply Patinas, you ca use a sponge to soak well the Metal Coating, but also brushes, paper towels, sprays, pour directly on the piece, etc.
Like Metal Coatings, Patinas can be mixed together. Trials can reveal amazing results.
You can also mix Patinas with Dye Oxides which are going to melt with Patinas and Metals to change their color, add details, tint some parts, etc.
Let rest your piece so that the oxidization reaction can happen. Christi Friesen recommends to let the piece between 12 and 24 hours so the reaction can be fully completed and the piece dry.
Reaction times differ according to the Patinas:
If at any moment after using Patina you feel the oxidization is sufficient, you can stop it by damping your piece in distilled water. Let it dry and proceed with dyeing or Sealant.
Material can be cleaned with soapy water.
After drying and the completed reaction, you may feel the oxidization is too important. Spread a Metal Coating layer on reliefs to accentuate them. Put a small amount of Metal Coating on a paper sheet so the paper absorbs its humidity and the Metal Coating becomes thicker like a wax. Rub the Metal Coating on the paper with your finger and paint the reliefs to mark the areas you want to highlight. Once again, you can mix Metal Coating colors to create your own shades.
Let dry or apply immediately Dyes.
