Get This Amazing Patina Metal Look Easily
Don’t you love the look of old metal roofs on churches and cathedrals? After having lived in Europe and I can’t even explain the extent of my love for metal patina without getting misty eyed. I am a huge fan of Dixie Belle Paint Company’s Patina Line, its extensive, it’s beautiful and it will last you a long time. Well unless you are putting patina on everything. In that case go on with your bad self!
What IS The Dixie Belle Patina Line?
The line includes a Prime Start, you will want to use when you patina metal. Prime Start helps prevent the metal under your patina from rusting through. There is Copper Patina which favors the green side of patina, Bronze that favors the blue side, and Iron that rusts! The patina paints are infused with metal so the metal patina you will get is legit! Dixie Belle also offers two colored sprays, green and blue which can be used with any of the paints to get different looks. Lastly, Dixie Belle has formulated a new product called Patina Guard, this will protect your crusty patina goodness for a long lasting finish!

You will do two coats of this. Wait 1-2 hours between coats and then wait 24 hours after that final coat before you start the next part.
For the patina paint step you will need two coats. The first coat needs to fully dry. You will want the second coat to be wet when you spray it. You will want to work fairly fast on this step.
