And I’ll say Pat-ina
You say Gilders
and I’ll say Vintaj
Pa-tina, Pat-ina, Gilders, Vintaj
Either way we add some colour!
So if you like Pa-tina and I like Pat-ina
I’ll call it Pa-tina and give up Pat-ina
For, we know, either is a colour glow
Better call the calling-off off
At the behest of Anne Marie – who is all things multi-media – we have added the Vintaj patinas – starting with a hand-picked selection of colourways, plus the Gloss and Matte sealer – which you can use as a sealer, a glaze, or to dilute the patinas for different effects. These patinas are opaque inks that adhere to metal.
Part of our restructuring of the website involves not putting every gosh-durn’d new thing in its own category, because how will you know if you will like something new if you never see it? So we have Patina Surface Treatments, from traditional Liver of Sulfur, to surface colourants, like Gilders paste and this week’s new Vintaj patinas are all together. Who knows, you might find something you like! Nothing says you have to stick to one method only!
Did you know that the Luminous line of Delicas are UV-reactive? Our own Amanda heard about this, and put together a sample. Exposing them to UV light makes them shine brightly – their secret to glorious colour in the sun. But know what else it means – Halloween parties often feature UV lights. Got any ideas yet?
