Patinas of various color can be created by treating metal surfaces with chemical solutions. Copper, brass and bronze coatings are used for traditional decoration of many types of metalwork including gates, mailboxes, metal roofs, gutters, and, as shown here, fireplaces.
We have collected patina recipes over the years and offer them here to the metal artist.
Let us know if you try one of our recipes and how it turned out. We'd be delighted to hear from you!
