he Metal Coatings are ground metal suspended in a non-toxic water based
acrylic binder. They may be applied to both metal and non-metal surfaces
such as glass, wood, ceramics, concrete, foam, and resin.
of the Dye-Oxide Patinas, Universal Patinas, Vista Patinas, Solvent
Dyes, Patina Stains, and Finishing Waxes work well with the Metal
Coatings allowing endless possibilities for finishes. Among the
Traditional Patinas, Liver of Sulfur (brown) and Tiffany (green) patinas
work the best with the Metal Coatings.
The Metal Coatings are
very durable outside (10 to 15 years) and are non-hazardous. One Gallon
of Metal Coating will cover 100 square feet (this includes the
recommended two layers).
The Metal Coatings are available in
two different formulas - B and C. Patinas may be applied to both whether
wet or dry. Once dry, either may be burnished with steel wool in order
to highlight or adjust the patina. Additionally, more patina may be
added after burnishing. Type C contains more metal than Type B and dries
hard enough to be polished with a polishing wheel. Type C comes bundled
with a catalyst and hardener.
Type B is available in brass,
bronze, copper, darkened iron, gold, iron, pewter, and silver and is
sold in 8oz., 16oz., 32oz., 1 gal., and 5 gal. sizes. Type C is
available in brass, bronze, copper, darkened iron, gold, iron, and
silver and is sold in 8oz., 16oz., 1 gal., and 5 gal. sizes.
When applying the Metal Coatings to ferrous metals (iron, steel, and
aluminum), a primer must be used to protect the underlying metal.
