Patina and Rust  Antiquing solutions:

  • the patina antiquing solution is a mild acid that triggers and speeds up the natural oxidation of the metal.

  • its the PH in the solution that oxidizes with metallics to produce Patina Green or Blue

  • if no reaction takes place remember to remove any dirt ,grime,grease with a commercial  metal cleaner

  • if the surface you are treating has a lacquer finish , remove it first with a paint remover or a solvent

  • the best sealer for a patina and rust finish would be a 2 part epoxy sealer

  • you could use a high quality acrylic solvent based sealer

  • a very fine automotive grade solvent based sealer works best on the rust finish

  • all sealers will alter the look of a rust finish

  • glass or plastics should be primed  as well as aluminum
