As you can see we started with a plain glass milk bottle! The first step for NON-metal pieces is a coat of Dixie Belle Paint! Remember: You do not have to use Prime Start on non-metal pieces.

After that you can apply two layers of Copper Patina Paint and activate with Blue Patina Spray! Sit back and watch the MAGIC happen!

You will achieve authentic copper and greenish/blue patina effects. This is an AUTHENTIC patina finish, not a faux finish. You may wipe it with a damp cloth or seal it with Gator Hide once you are happy with the results.

Prime Start is a product used to prep metal pieces before starting the patina reactions.
Patina Paint is infused with metal pieces and reacts when the Patina Spray is applied! You can find a tutorial that incorporates the Prime Start and a metal pieces in our projects!
