Patinas –
A patina is a thin layer that develops on the surface of certain materials over time. It usually appears as a result of exposure to elements like air, moisture, or chemicals, and can give the material an aged or weathered look. Patina is often valued for its unique and natural appearance, adding character and beauty to objects like metals, statues, or antique furniture.

At Barnes, we supply the best patina solutions from Sculpt Nouveau. This range will produce an effect on all kinds of metals, such as bronze, brass, copper, iron, steel, and aluminium. We carry the traditional blue and green range, perfect for creating a Verdigris colour on copper. We have the Traditional Brown range for creating an aged look to most metals. This is especially popular for creating an antique brass or aged bronze look. If you’re hoping to darken or antique bronzes and silvers, our liver of sulfur is the best. Alternatively, Traditional Black patinas will darken and blacken most metals, but ultimately it will depend on how the metal was prepped. A blackened finish on steel, stainless steel and Aluminium is most common, as it darkens the shiny silver tones.

The Birchwood Casey range contains concentrated formulas which must be diluted with distilled water. The more coats you apply, the darker the finish will go. These can be sprayed, sponged and dipped (immersed), depending on the finish you want to achieve.

The patinas may require a hot or cold application, so ensure you have selected the best option for your application. Cold patinas are applied at room temperature and hot patinas are applied on heated metals. For added protection, don’t forget to apply a clear sealer or wax once the patina is dry.
