Botanics Patina Spray can be used to oxidise brass, copper and iron, giving a beautiful verdigris finish. Used in conjunction with Botanics copper metallic paint and our Copper/Brass/Bronze Metal Powder you can create an aged copper finish.
Sold separately but to be used as a duo!
Just sprinkle the Copper/Bronze/Brass Metal Powder onto a damp surface (Botanics paint, metallic paint, gilding wax can be used) then spray on the Patina Spray. Wait about 15 minutes or more for a gorgeous verdigris effect. Seal with Flat Sealer to stop the oxidiation process.
Please Note: The Patina Spray must be used with the Copper/Bronze/Brass Powder not Gilding Powders as it needs the metal to oxidise.
Liquid Verdigris is a second option to using Patina spray, this is also a product that does not oxidise. It is 100% safe to use and perfect for every application when it comes to verdigris faux finishing.
It dries similar to Patina Spray. Patina Spray and Liquid Verdigris are totally different products that will achieve similar looks. It is a matter of working out your favourite and different products for different looks.
Advantages of this product are:
It doesn't smell, there are no fumes.
You have more control of where you Patina.
You can build up areas without it looking too over the top.
It doesn't develop more(grow) over time
It doesn't require sealing
Value for money, a bottle of this will last more projects than the spray will.
