My copper patina job stinks!

Liva Stained Glass Polish

Tired of getting poor copper patina results? You have tried everything short of standing on your head while applying copper patina and nothing seems to work. We have unlocked the mystery of getting your patina projects shiny and beautiful.

First, make sure your Copper Patina Solution hasn’t been contaminated. We pour the solution in the cap, rather than dip your brush in the bottle. Copper Patina Solution is very delicate and contamination can cause poor results. Also, use a brush only for Copper Patina, don’t share with any other chemicals.

Second, as soon as you have finished your soldering take it to the sink to apply your Copper Patina. Don’t wait until Dancing With The Stars is over. The longer you wait, the more oxidation will occur, which effects your finish. Don’t wash the project until after the Patina is applied. Washing it before can introduce contaminates from the water, which may effect your patina job. After you apply the Patina, then wash and neutralize the chemicals. We like to use Kwik-Clean as a neutralizer.

Third, our secret weapon, is to polish your project with Liva Polish. It will bring out the best in your Copper Patina and really shine.
