Antique Bronze is a patina (blue liquid) that instantly imparts a light to dark bronze finish on steel & iron. Antique Bronze is used for lighting fixtures, railings, hardware, gates, gift items, basically anywhere steel or iron need to be given a Antique Bronze Look.
The parts should be cleaned and conditioned with Surclean-400 by dipping your pieces, and depending how dirty they are you can scrub with steel wool.(If Surclean-400 is not an option you can sandblast your pieces).
Antique Bronze can be sprayed or brushed on steel/iron. For brushing use as is, brush back and fourth a few times and wait for 1-3 minutes.
For spraying, dilute 1:2 with water, dip for 5-30 seconds (depending how light or dark brown you desire.)Rinse with water & dry with rag right away.
Protect your finish with a Lacquer/Sealer. I recommend Acrylaq-1045 flat lacquer for exterior and interior. Use as is and spray evenly.
Some of these products are acidic and could be fatal if swallowed, take precautions while handling and using such product. Keep away from children and pets. Wear rubber or neoprene gloves
