Traditional Rainbow and Torch Patinas are very interesting finishes. Depending on the application method and the metal used, many different finishes can be created using these patinas. Traditional Patinas are available in 8oz., 32oz., 1gal., and 5gal. sizes and are only shipped by ground.

For best results, apply Rainbow Patina to a shiny and clean metal surface. This patina does not work with the Metal Coatings.

On iron and steel, Torch Patina is designed to be used over a base of Copper Plate Patina to create the torch effect. The uniformity and colors of the patina are determined by the application techniques. Without the Copper Plate Patina base, Torch Patina will turn steel a mixture of black, grey, and rust.

On Bronze, Brass, and Copper, Torch Patina is designed to be applied directly to clean metal.
