All Birchwood patinas are considered traditional patinas that will age or darken metal. These patinas are sold concentrated and should be diluted with distilled water (up to 50%) before use.
A clear sealer should be applied when completed to protect the finish.
The Birchwood gels make it easier to achieve an even patina and work well on vertical surfaces.
