Win a Steel F/X SUPER STARTER KIT & DYES COMBO PACKAGE WORTH $400

Did you know that metal art finished with patinas and/or dyes will sell for 2X or 3X that of plain steel, or powder-coated metal art? It's true, and not only that, this product sets your work apart from many of your competitors who don't realize it doesn't take any longer, and is no more difficult than other finishing methods!

If you have been holding out on giving this a try either because your too busy, or believe it costs too much, now is your chance to change the way you make metal art and change the way your customers react to it! Once you try this you will be hooked and be all the better for it!

Bill Worden of Steel F/X has generously donated a complete $400 Super Starter Kit containing 9 different patina's and 11 dye colors so you can pick your favorites and see what they can do for you now and in the future.

This contest is open to ALL PlasmaSpider members and will end with a random draw to select the lucky winner of this $400 prize with free shipping within the lower 48. If your not lucky enough to live in one of the lower 48, no sweat, you can still win but may need to pay a small shipping fee to receive your prize.

To enter all you need to do is reply to this and attach a picture of your favorite metal art piece or product that has been finished with a patina or dye. This can be something you have made yourself, or something you have seen someone else create that has really impressed you. This site and Instagram is a great place to find patina finished projects to use as an entry pic. Remember it MUST be finished with a patina or dye to be an eligible entry.

Good luck! I am looking forward to seeing some cool pics so get em in!

Check out https://steelfxpatinas.com/shop/super-s ... o-package/ for more information on this product and others.

Never used the dyes, but anxious to try if I'm the lucky one. Thanks to Hootville for posting these cute little guys on PlasmaSpider. Too bad he didn't post the pattern.

Rose and Sunflower finished with SteelFX Metal Dyes. Red, Green, and Yellow, shot with an airbrush, then clear coat over the top. The pictures don't do justice to the beauty of these and the excitement of the recipients.

I have always used homemade dyes and patinas but with my business growing I would like to take the plunge into other areas of dye etc.
Winning this starter package would give me an idea of your product and what I can do in the future to improve the quality of my finish.
Pic shows some home made dye I use. works great but you can only do so many pieces with same finish .

As a new member with a brand new plasma table, Premier 4x8 flat deck the American Flag is still my favorite. As a army veteran and a mortgage banker by day and a hands on guy at night and weekends I simply loving making signs, art, manufacturing anything cool. Thanks I'll be checking out your product for future projects as I learn the trade.

Hi Bill, Very nice prize! Here is a picture of a 36" hand hammered king Salmon in spawning colors that I did a few years ago. It has a copper plate patina under clear coat. I have used a lot of patina acids like Easy plate and Easy torch and like the effects but I am attracted to the depth and intensity of Your metal dyes! Russ K.

This is one of my favorite, finished with Copper F/X and I let it sit on the piece quite a long time prior to clearing.

You should try some COPPER F/X one of these days. You'll be amazed at the difference. I promise!

I didn't create this, just found it and think it is gorgeous. Would love to be able to do something similar.

This was the first thing I've dyed since starting this plasma gig. It was actually a drop from a sign I cut out for a company. Either way I'm looking forward to continuing on!

I have been "dying" to try this product! This is one of my favorite pieces I've seen finished (not by me) with Steel F/X. I would love to try and replicate this.
