Traditional Green Patina is a Cold Patina:
"Cold Patina" is a term used for applying patinas without heating the metal. The best room or air temperature for these patinas is between 65 and 75 F. Cold patinas, once applied to the metal, require hours or days to react. Often they involve cycles of applications involving layers of patina. The three basic techniques of applying the patina are to use a brush, sponge, or spray bottle. There are also some very interesting ancient techniques where the metal object is buried in substances soaked with the patina or wrapped in cloth soaked with a patina. A characteristic of most cold patinas is that they are opaque.

Sandblasting works very well and generally provides an evenly toothed surface. Sand paper, Scotch Brite pads and Steel Wool also work well, but the evenness of the surface up to the user. We offer a Metal Cleaner that removes the old oxidation and brightens up the metal surface easily while removing any finger prints or oils.

NOTE: The smoother the metal surface the shiner the patina will be, mechanical cleaning i.e. sandblasting and such provides a more matte surface but cold patinas will adhere better to them than a bright smooth surface.
There is no wrong way to apply a patina. Commonly used: Hogs hair brushes, sponges, spray bottles and cheese cloth, etc. Different application tools give different effects, a natural sea sponge or cheese cloth will show the random textures of the material used to apply the patina - especially if lightly applied.
Please Note: Patinas will vary in color with different metals, humidity,
temperature and surface preparation.
