NOVACAN – 2 BOTTLE CHEMICALS COMBO PACK!
1 – 4 oz. Bottle of Black Patina
1 – 4 oz. Bottle of Copper Patina
THESE Patina’s will change Silver colored Solder to Copper OR Black color!
For best results do the following steps as it’ll really make a difference!
1. After soldering wipe finished solder with a piece of 0000 (super fine) steel wool.
2. Clean with a non ammonium cleaner (that means NO glass or widow cleaners). I recommend using a spray bottle filled with cheap alcohol from your medicine cabinet.
3. Apply patina with a clean acid/Flux Brush.
4. Clean again.
5. Most important you need to finish off with a metal polish or a car wax (or my Finishing compound made for solder) to shine and protect that patina altered solder.
**** For ANTIQUE LOOK **** Instructions
Antique your solder with Patinas! Using both Black & Copper Patina combined is a great way to achieve this.
After soldering piece you’d steel wool solder with 0000 super fine wool, clean & apply black patina by brushing it on with acid/flux brush (same brush you flux with, only make sure it’s a clean one).
Next, go over solder again with steel wool (which lightens up that black patina), clean again & apply some copper patina. Working with this back and forth you can create really cool antique looks.
