Item details

Included in the this combo pack are 6ml bottles of the "Retro" colors (Pepto Pink, Cornflower Blue, and Tangerine) along with the "Tahiti" colors (Sea Green, Orchid, and Black Pearl). No substitutions.

Packaged in controlled release dropper bottles, there is plenty for your metal projects. Color Me This Patinas are easy-to-use, cold application patinas for copper, brass, silver, all metal clays and other materials. Simple to follow instructions are included. No heat is required. Just prep your surface, apply the colorant, let dry thoroughly, sand back to highlight metal textures, and seal to protect.

From the time I started selling my colored etched sheets and components, I've been asked if I would sell the patinas. Well, here they are! The most recent in the line of "Color Me This" Metal Patinas, "Treats" includes some deep vibrant colors and some soft subtle colors. These are custom-blended colors developed by me in my studio and packaged for you. They are formulated from finely ground, naturally occurring colored oxides with a water base polymer/resin binder. The patinas have no odor, no VOC and are safe to use with appropriate care and safety. They will stain fabric permanently...ask me how I know!

The photo above shows the colors in the bottles. They appear darker here than when applied. You can add additional coats to deepen the color or use over other patinas. They do settle somewhat, so be sure to shake well before using. Second photo shows the Tahiti colors, third-fifth show the Retro colors.

Experimenting will give you additional shades of the sample pack colors.

Check out my new Tutorial for tips and tricks to maximize your use of the patinas:

I recommend PermaLac or ClearGuard spray sealants, especially if you will be working the metal (cutting disks, lightly doming, sawing, etc.); however other users have had success with DecoArt DuraClear Varnish, Rustoleum, and DiamondGlaze.
