This step is important.Ã‚Â You will want to stop the process once you achieve the color of patina you desire.
This is a traditional patina product.Ã‚Â It is slightly acidic so be sure to wear rubber gloves when you use this product as it may prove irritating to some skin types. Even keeping a box of wet wipes nearby would be a good idea.
Darkening patina is great for aging or darkening the Metal Coatings or cold cast/resin materials, yet it will darken all other metals as well. This patina adds a deep black-brown 'antiquing' look to the Metal Coatings and will create a beautiful transparent brown on iron and steel.
Once the piece has cured completely (6-12 hours) you may apply a clear, protective sealant.
