How to Use Vintaj Patinas and Glaze

Hi this is Julie with
and I’m very excited to introduce you to a new line of products and these are
Vintaj Patinas and they come in sets of three like this. I’ve pulled several
different sets to show you the color range. We’ve got these wonderful pale pink and
purple the nice brown earth tones I have a cream, yellow, black set purples and blues which are a litlle bit richer in tone and I got some great green with a turquoise you get do three in a set which
makes it really nice to blend these and then another product you’re gonna
wanna consider using when you do use the Patinas is a glaze and this is put out by
Vintaj as well it works as a sealer as well as a Patina extender and I’m going to show you just how to use it you’re going to maybe want to use the
Vintaj relief block, not necessary but you’ll see a little trick on how to make
your designs pop you’re going to need a paintbrush some water, a paper towel and then I’m also
working on a nonstick kraft mat. This actually a soldering mat but it works
really well for this application as well so what’s so great about the Patinas is that they are permanent and they were specially formulated for metal so you do not actually need to use a
sealer to seal the Patina unless you wanna go ahead and relief the
surface a little bit which I will show you how to do it so let’s get started right away so you
can see how fun these are I did a couple already, here’s this
great beetle and what I used on this guy was black and green I did a wash of turquoise and then I
relieved it with the relief block. I want show you the exact same process but on this
key so I’m going to grab my colors:
olive green black and then also the turquoise what you want to do is shake these up and you’ll hear a ball shake them up really well and they are super fast drying and
I’m going to pour it out onto my nonstick mat take my paintbrush, I’m not going to
paint, I’m going to dab I’m doing that to get all the
nooks and crannies of these wonderful thing Vintaj metal pieces unless you’re using a flat brush and that’s also helping me to get into the little recesses, cover a lot of
territory when you’re done, go ahead and immediately
wash your paint brush off with water this is going to dry very quickly so I right now going to add some cream into it while it’s still
a little bit wet you can lightly touch it, you’ll see that
not a lot comes off, it is drying pretty quick and I’m gonna put green sporadically, let it mix a little bit with the black and wash my paint brush off right
away I’m going to let that dry, I’m going to the take two or three minutes to dry I’m going to go over the top with a turquoise wash now that may first coat is dry, I wanna
apply a wash over the entire surface so I’m going to go ahead a little bit of paint on the mat and then take the glaze you want to do one part patina to two to three maybe even four
parts of the Glaze depending upon how thin you want it just like that mix it up you’re not going to use water to create a
washed effect but you’re going to use the glaze just going to paint this over
the entire surface you can see that actually it wasn’t as
dry as it should of been, it has a little bit of color coming off, that’s going to be
okay for this application because it’s not a precise science and I just want an overall color effect again wash off right away while this one is drying, I want to show you
another technique I’m going to take this Vintaj arte metal I’m going to use different colors and I think
I’m gonna go for a cream maybe even a pink and I’m going to do an all over base color in cream just dabbing on this piece I want to get a bit
more of a modeled effect go ahead and take a bit of paper towel just go over the area I painted you’re gonna pull off some of that paint add a little pink go into different spots dab does dry really quick just be aware of that rinse off my paint brush for really colorful look I’m going to add some purple again paper towel blot it and I have a really nice model look set that aside to dry clean off the brush while those two are drying, before I use
a Vintaj relief block on it want to show you one more example I’ve got this Vintaj stamping blank which I’ve used an embossing
plate on with the Vintaj BIGKick to create the design go and dab the black paint on the entire surface of the butterfly washout my paintbrush and then let the black coat dry for a
minute and then and then go over and do s wash on top on him as well now I’m going to put a wash on the butterfly. I’m going to take my pink again I’m going to extend it with the
glaze mix that up and just paint it the over the wash I’m just letting the paint settle into the recessed area I’m going to let that dry and then come back and use the Vintaj relief
to bring out some of those raised areas now that my Patinas are completely
dry, go ahead and take the left side of my Vintaj relief block and go over the top surface and expose some of the metal below. These is a arte metal piece, it’s exposes some of the nice silver color if you’ve worked with arte metal that the main color is a black but when you use the Vintaj relief it pulls out
of really wonderful rich silver There’s that piece these are already done I actually love how the key looks, I’m not going
to use the relief block on it It’s perfect the way it is and I’ve got my butterfly and do the
same thing, relief the surface you can see I’m pulling out some of that brass
below It’s getting a really interesting effect I’m happy with how that looks so now for sealing this piece here doesn’t need to be
sealed at all it just got the Patina on it and that’s
permanent. It doesn’t need to be sealed that’s the same with this piece right here
that I did. I just had like a modeled effect that I did with
the paper towel now technically these guys do not need to be sealed
either they have Patina on them and they are good to go however if you want to
keep it looking identical to this meaning that exposed area, the color that
it is where I pulled out the brass and I pulled out the arte metal silver then you’re gonna wanna go ahead and seal it paint a layer over the entire top surface you might want to do some dabbing just because it’ll into the nooks and crannies you don’t have to do this, if you’re okay
with that color changing ever so slightly as it ages as it naturally do and you don’t need to if you want to keep that silver really silver You want to go ahead and just seal it with
the glaze and not is all there is to using Vintaj Patinas and Glaze

  1. two questions: 1: where did you get that "craft mat" and 2. do they sell the patina in a white?

  2. You can get the craft mat on Beadaholique . com's website. We sell a color called Agate in the 'Retro Highway' kit. The links for the supplies in this video are located in the video description underneath the video.

  3. Think of these much like paint, if you get some on your hands and let it dry, then you will have some color that you need to wash off. It does wash off but the longer it stays on your skin, the harder it is to get off.

  4. You can get them on Beadaholique . com's website. The links for the supplies in this video are located in the video description underneath this video.

  5. I am not sure if soda can tabs have some type of sealant on them that might resist a metal patina. All I can say is "give it a try" and see what happens. My best guess is that it will work, but I unfortunately can not say for certain.

  6. I have found that if you are going to apply patina on aluminum one must prep the surface of the aluminum for better adhesion. Usually a quick sanding with some sandpaper (depending on what you are preping gauge your grit on the sandpaper). A few vertical passes, as well as a few horizona and dioganal passes will give you a good working surface. Best of luck. 🙂

  7. Yes, I think these patinas could be used on a variety of metals. I would suggest testing them out on the backside of a test piece and seeing if you like how they look and are adhering.

  8. You can get the supplies featured in our videos on Beadaholique . com's website. The links for the supplies in this video are located in the video description underneath this video.

  9. Nice job and very interesting, indeed.  I must say,though, the volume was not as good as your other videos and maybe that's affected by the the gals' voice which is not strong and very sing-songy.  I mean this to be constructive,  Thank you, 1926lady

  10. Hello, Thank you so much for your great tutorial !! really appriciated. I'm interested in the first verdigris color for the key. Are you using Moss, Verdigris and Onyx color in vintaj patina??

  11. Looking at your video and the finished patina — it looks like the patina is quite shiny, almost like an enamel finish?  Help on this?  Thanks.
