The Universal Patinas were made to go directly onto any metal or the Liquid Metal Coating. However an easy and safe patina technique for ferrous metal or aluminum using the Universal Patinas, is to first apply a metal primer (zinc ‘rustoleum’ type), then apply the Universal Patinas in the colors you want to the primer, next apply a clear sealer. Universal Patinas do not contain acids; they are UV safe, indoor, or outdoor oxides. These patinas may be applied hot or cold to any metal including iron, steel, and aluminum without causing rust.
