Before you get started:
GREEN PATINA FORMULA – to “Verde” the copper
BROWN PATINA FORMULA – to darken the copper (like a penny)
Step 4: Apply
Apply patina solution (made in step 3) by spraying onto fixture, preferably in the early evening on a high-humidity night.
Allow first coat to set, then reapply solution observing where you missed applying on the first coat. If there seems to be oil that is repelling the patina solution, clean it off with the Windex cleaner.
Step 6: Admire
The resulting patina will be an earth-toned mix of browns and greens. Do not rub off. In time (and reapplication) this finish will become permanent. The brightness will fade with time. To reduce green, cut back on the salt content. The brown patina formula is not as powdery as the green patina formula and will not need as many re-applications
NOTE: Color and effect is greatly affected by application ambient temperature and humidity. There are many commercially available compounds that will brighten copper and brass. These include Brasso which applies like car wax. To make the shine permanent, you must live in a strong sun area, any clear finish you put on will get baked off in time.
