Classic black patinas in a variety of shades and styles for all metals and metal coatings.
Slate Black Patina is a versatile and unique finish for use on iron, steel, stainless steel, aluminum, bronze, brass, or copper.
Slate Black Patina is a versatile black finish for use on most metals. On iron and steel, it will produce a black patina with some brown showing through the finish. This is a fast 3-5 minute reaction that is arrested with water. Additional coats will darken the patina. Slate Black Patina can be diluted with distilled water for lighter coats.
Slate Black Patina will darken bronze, brass, and copper in a similar way. On zinc and galvanized steel, it will produce a dark brown to black patina. On aluminum, it must be applied hot (180-200°F) and will create a brown finish. On stainless steel, it must also be applied hot and will produce a red, black, and brown patina.
Applied hot, Slate Black will create a deep brown patina on aluminum and a red-green finish on stainless steel. On iron, steel, and nonferrous metals, Slate Black will form a black patina when applied cold.
Before applying this patina, sandblasting or sanding is required to clean the surface of oil, oxides, and residues. Slate Black may be applied as a spray or in an immersion process. Depending on the application method chosen, the results will range from a uniform solid color to a layered textured appearance. Slate Black Patina may be diluted up to 50% with distilled water depending on the desired strength of finish. The finish may be burnished wet or dry. Additional patinas can be layered over a Slate Black base. When dry, protect the finish with multiple coats of a clear sealer.
Black Magic Patina instantly creates a beautiful rich black patina on clean iron & steel. Rust will not occur immediately as with other darkening patinas. Water rinsing is a good neutralizer and will not cause rust. Rust will occur after 12 hours if a clear sealer is not applied.
Black Magic will darken bonded bronze, brass, and copper castings as well as Sculpt Nouveau’s Metal Coatings to an orange-black color.
Black Magic creates a beautiful brown-black patina on cleaned bronze, brass, and copper.
Stainless Black Patina is made to create a black patina finish on stainless steel.
Zinc Grey Patina creates a grey or black patina on zinc or galvanized steel. The patina will be black and often mottled if applied at full strength. Dilution with distilled water is recommended for a smooth light grey finish. Layering the patina with multiple light coats will gradually darken the shade and allow you to control the uniformity of the finish.
