How to achieve greenish colors with Steel-FX

Post by Uthayne » Wed Jun 08, 2022 1:54 pm

I have been using Steel-FX patinas for a few years on CRS to great pleasure. I did these oysters three years ago and can't for the life of me remember how I achieved the greenish colors. I've tried various combinations and timings with the different patinas that I have and cannot replicate it. Any ideas would be helpful.

Patinas which I use (and only ones I had at the time) are: Copper FX, Torch FX, Rust FX, Pewter FX, and Bronze FX (Craftsman Starter pack)

Maybe get ahold of Bill from steel fx. He might have the answer, if you already have not tried that. And send them the picture. I have tried a few of his products in the past, and still have some on hand. His reviews show that he is super responsive, so it might be worth giving that a try..
Looks pretty awesome!!

Not sure how I missed this post and probably late to the show, but I have found that by applying one color over the other achieves some awesome results.
For instance apply Copper FX and rinse, then apply Black FX and before it goes to black there are all kinds of color variations that appear. When a color appears that you like just rinse to stop the reaction. But be ready, changes can occur fast.
My guess is that Bronze FX or Flame FX over Copper FX may get you a green affect.
