Simply brush these metal coatings directly onto your cleaned surface --polymer clay, metal, plaster, resin, wood, ceramic, paper....just about anything. Apply one coat, let it dry (about 5-15 minutes); apply a second coat, and then add the patinas while the coating is still moist. Apply to metal coating while still moist. Patinas can take time to bloom and can continue to react for up to 24 hours. Generous 2 ounce bottle; I like to apply the coatings with a bit of sponge. Ships Parcel Post in US.
