Sculpt Nouveau Traditional Blue Patinas are a range of blue aging solutions for bronze, brass, copper, and the Metal Coatings. These patinas will rust iron and steel and should not be used on aluminum. To use Traditional Blue Patinas on those surfaces, Prime-It and a Metal Coating should be applied first.
Cupric Nitrate is a classic hot patina for bronze, brass, and copper resulting in a blue green finish. If used on iron or steel, rust will occur. Cupric Nitrate is commonly used over the top of a base patina such as Traditional Liver of Sulfur or Ferric Nitrate Patinas to add more depth and contrast to the finish.
Powder Blue is a cold patina for bronze, brass, copper, and the Metal Coatings. This patina results in a stable opaque finish close to a bright ocean blue. Because of its stability once dry and sealed, it is a good choice for outdoor work. However, it should be applied indoors and requires at least 24 hours to develop.
Original Blue is a cold patina for bronze, brass, copper, and the Metal Coatings resulting in a light, pale blue to turquoise finish. Like the Powder Blue Patina, it should be allowed to develop for 24 hours before sealing.
Traditional Blue Patinas are sold in 8oz., 32oz., and 1 gal. sizes. Spray tops are included with 8oz. and 32oz. bottles. One gallon of Traditional Blue Patina generally covers 200 sq. ft.
