pieces need UV protection that only a high-quality clear-coat can provide.

Video 4 ~ COPPER F/X , TORCH F/X, BRONZE F/X and PEWTER F/X on Bare Mild Steel that

Video 5~ TORCH F/X on Copper F/X
It is important to use the TORCH F/X in a close, soft, repetitive spray. Limit the use to a small area as seen in the video, until you achieve the level of blue that you want, then neutralize with water & move to a new area.
You can also drizzle, drip, or drag saturated sponge, cloth or brush an area with the Torch F/X repeatedly for some very interesting effects.
The STEEL F/X Patinas & Dyes are very versatile & you are only limited by your imagination.
