Copper Patina

Postby cfmetalworks » Fri May 04, 2018 11:20 am

Hey guys maybe someone can help me!

Ive been using steel fx copper patina and it starts to turn black like its molding while I'm spraying. Does anyone know what causes this??

Thank you!

The copper fx will do that if you leave it on too long or go over it again after rinsing. It is my experience that you spray a fine mist and rinse just as soon as you finish spraying it on the metal to prevent or reduce the dark spots. It only takes a few seconds for the copper fx to work.

Thank you Metalworx!

How do you do that if you are finishing a large piece?

I have not done a lot of large pieces with the copper fx yet. Most of mine ore 30 inches or under. This post that is just a few post down this page might help some. I know Bill "steelfx" is on this site often and he would be your best source for information.
