How to Create a Rainbow Patina

Learn how to create a gorgeous rainbow patina on your metal clay piece! Check out this quick vid I shot today!

Creating a rainbow patina is easy to do, and fun to experiment with! Give it a try and see how many color combos you can come up with on your PMC pieces!

In this vid I’m working with a ring I created from PMC3 (fine silver). I’m using Patina Gel in this vid to create my colored oxidized look.

Have a creative day!

    You are so inspiring to me and those that have the passion to create. I would like to know if your book can be purchased? Thx!

    I was searching for how to do this with copper but I ended up being more intrigued by the Cool Tools gel you used. How easy is that? I haven’t used the gel before but I’m going to purchase some and give that a try on some copper. Thanks for the video. Nice change from having to skim articles.

    I wonder if I could make my own with standard patina and aloe vera gel instead of dishwashing detergent, per Michael’s comment…going off to try!

    You can make your own “patina gel” with dishwashing detergent and few drops of standard black patina.
