JAX water-based Patinas react differently depending on the composition of the metal alloys and the preparation of the metal surface to be treated. They are safe, easy to use and require no heat or electricity. Different effects can be achieved by brushing, sponging, or spraying the patina and usually the chemical process will continue somewhat after the patina solution has been rinsed off. They may be diluted with more water to help further control the process.
