Patina & Rusting Agents
Magic Metallics™ Patinas and Rapid Rust act to oxidize Magic Metallic metal acrylics. Copper, and Dark Bronze will develop a patina stain when treated with MM-200 Verde Green Patina, MM-201 Aqua Blue Patina or MM-202 Green Patina. Steel will rust when treated with MM-305 Rapid Rust.
Verde Green Patina
Aqua Blue Patina
- While the second coat of metallic paint is still wet, apply the rust or patina agents with a brush, sponge or spritzer nozzle. The Magic Metallics™ colors need to be wet for oxidation to occur. (MM-103 Dark Bronze may patina even if dry).
- Oxidation begins within 20 minutes - Rust may take a little longer. When you achieve the level of oxidation you desire dry the surface with a paper towel, fan or hair dryer. As long as the patina or rusting agents remain wet the oxidation process will continue.
- Then seal with AC-502 Matte Sealer.
- All the Patinas can be mixed with each other. Try MM-200 Verde Green Patina with MM-201 Aqua Blue Patina.
- The Patinas will also work on any ferrous metals. Idea: fill a clean stamp pad with a patina and use rubber stamps to print onto thin copper sheeting. The stamp design will remain as a patina pattern.
- If working on glass, apply MM-502 Matte Sealer before applying a metal paint. The sealer serves to tack-up the glass and improve adhesion.
