Vista patinas are a two part patina combined in one solution. The base patina is a blend of chemicals that produce a beautiful green on bronze, brass, and copper, or an exquisite rust on iron & steel. Added to this base solution are different colored oxides which will blend with the first reaction to form a marbled patina. For example, using the vista black on bronze would produce a green and black patina and a rust and black patina on iron.
We carry seven unique vista colors which we are sure will add to your finish. Please select color and size below. There is one exception in the Vista Patina category, and that is the Vista Green. We now make carry two formulas for this color - one for non-ferrous metals (bronze, brass, and copper) and the other for ferrous metals (iron & steel). Please select the correct formula to suit your needs when ordering.

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.
These Universal Patinas come in a wide range of colors. They bind onto the metal surface, but do not react with the metal. And, the color of the patinas will not change like the traditional patinas. These patinas are designed to be applied cold, although patinas on this chart with an * may be applied hot. They can also be applied directly to iron, steel, and aluminum without causing oxidation to the metal. The metal surface needs to be clean before application. We have numerous unique patina colors that will give you an unlimited variety in your finishes. We have a new Verde patina which looks like a traditional cold green patina. When ordering, please be sure to designate color and size.

The water base Dye-Oxide Patinas are very versatile. They are a cross between the Solvent Base Dyes and a patina. All of the colors are transparent and may be blended or layered together to achieve any color you want. They may be applied over any metal or any other patina solution while it is wet or dry to alter the color. The Dye-Oxides can also be added to the patina before application or directly applied over other Metal Coatings like Gilders Paste. All Dye-Oxides may be used for indoor and outdoor use.
They can be applied in any manner to achieve the look you desire and may be used in any traditional hot or cold patina application technique. We carry eight unique Dye-Oxide colors that will give you an added palette of color to create beautiful finishes.
Slate Black Patina is a versatile and unique finish for use on iron, steel, stainless steel, aluminum, bronze, brass, or copper. Applied hot, Slate Black will create a deep brown patina on aluminum and a red-green finish on stainless steel. On iron, steel, and nonferrous metals, Slate Black will form a black patina when applied cold.
Before applying this patina, sandblasting or sanding is required to clean the surface of oil, oxides, and residues. Slate Black may be applied as a spray or in an immersion process. Depending on the application method chosen, the results will range from a uniform solid color to a layered textured appearance. Slate Black Patina may be diluted up to 50% with distilled water depending on the desired strength of finish. The finish may be burnished wet or dry. Additional patinas can be layered over a Slate Black base. When dry, protect the finish with multiple coats of a clear sealer.
Black Magic Patina instantly creates a beautiful rich black patina on clean iron & steel. Rust will not occur immediately as with other darkening patinas.

Black Magic will darken bonded bronze, brass, and copper castings as well as Sculpt Nouveau Metal Coatings to an orange-black color. Black Magic creates a beautiful brown-black patina on cleaned bronze, brass, and copper.
