What I love about the patinas is how easy they are to apply and their instant gratification. Just put a little dot on plate and them brush it onto your metal. That's it. Done and over. You can layer on other colors or mix the colors like paint on your palette. No chemicals are needed, no sealers. That's my kind of color system!
When opaque the patinas almost remind me of enamel. Use can use the glaze for different wash effects. They can be used as a faux natural patina on metal or go crazy painting up your metal in fantasy colors.
Check out Lorelei Eurto's results from last week. I love how she did the patina on the chain. So many possibilities, so little time.
