Thanks for the opportunity to win an awesome set up! I have been cutting for a few months now and patina and dyes are something I am researching and planning on implementing in the near future. I haven't applied anything other than powdercoat and paint to my art. I saved this image a while back because the palette of colors. I know they are basic but it really caught my eye! This is not my art and I am not associated with the owner in any way other than admiration.

I have just started using Steel F/X and love them! Copper Patina was used for a customer.

It would be awesome to win a starter kit of your products! I've been eyeballing them about as long as I've been eyeballing my plasma table lol! I plan on purchasing some as soon as I grow my business a little more. Thanks for the chance, and good luck to everyone else! I really like these glossy brown patina finishes and cant wait to try it on some of my work.

I would love to try patina! Just a little nervous to make the initial investment as I'm not sure I would be very good at it. Here is a picture I found on the internet of something I really like. There were many art pieces I liked, but this is actually something like what I would do.

Very first time using the copper FX patina. Turned out amazing. Looking forward to playing with it more. Clear powder coat over the top.

Mine is much more utilitarian. I used black oxide patina on these spacers for a jeep product which worked very well as a rust deterrent. Sorry it has some gravity issues.

My first project with Steel F/X! I love it, and so did the customer! I’d love to try some metal dyes!

I haven't used steel f/x yet but am anxious to try it. This tree of life is something that we make in boring black a lot. It's time to step it up a notch

This is a patina I did using Copper Sulfate. I am interested in learning how to use Steel F/X.

This is an owl we did early on, the first bigger thing we did with any kind of dye/patina.

I really like the color case hardening patina. I haven't used it yet, but want to. My favorite piece is this (or similar)
