Creating a patina with sodium dichromate typically involves making a solution with water and applying it to metals such as brass or bronze. To prepare the solution, you would dissolve a small amount of sodium dichromate in water. The ratio can vary, but as a general guideline, you might start with about a teaspoon of sodium dichromate per liter of water. Adjust the concentration based on the desired effect. Apply the solution to the metal surface using a brush or spray bottle. The resulting color can range from greens to browns, depending on factors such as the concentration of the solution, the type of metal, and the application method.

After application, it's important to rinse the metal with water and neutralize the surface to stop the chemical reaction. Always use personal protective equipment like gloves and goggles when handling chemicals like sodium dichromate, and work in a well-ventilated area. For more detailed recipes and specific instructions, consider consulting specialized resources or professionals in metalworking and patina applications.
