Copper Sulfate Pentahydrate

Post by _jay_ » Fri Jun 26, 2020 2:56 am


Has any one used Copper Sulfate Pentahydrate (CuSO4.5H2O) to make patinas on CR steel ?

Seems to create transfer of copper ions thus covering the metal surface with copper.

I bought some Copper Sulfate and mixed it in with distilled water and it produced copper on steel, but i just cannot get the mix ratio right enough to suit me. I just decided its much more consistent to use Steel FX Products rather than wasting time messing up artwork.
