Tutorial patina gold aged
How to apply an aged gold patina on a 3D print model.
Apply a patina in 4 steps. I use this product,but there are many other brands. There are two type of bottles : one for gold paint and one for the oxidizing product. It's better to have two separate brushes, one for gold and one for the oxidizing product. The idea is not to pollute the gold paint with residues of oxidizing product.
First step: the gold paint.
First, shake well, because gold paint is really thick. After that, apply the gold layer. Everyone can choose to put less or more painting. It's a personnal feeling, for example, I love strong aging effect, so I put more material on my object. First step completed. Immediately the oxidizing product must be applied to the fresh paint.
Second step: the oxidizing product.
Take the second brush. Delicately paint the product on the model. Fill the gaps well.
Let dry 1 hour.
The oxidation is complete, the aged effect is very successful and already exploitable. But I prefer to add two more steps for an even more beautiful effect.
Third step: the varnish.
I use a domestic varnish, it's cheaper and very effective. You can find it in every DIY stores in your country.
Fourth and last step: the gold brushing.
Let it dry for half an hour. On a sheet of paper, eliminate the excess of paint. Delicately with the end of the brush, without pressing, paint every outer surfaces. The intention is to leave the green patina in the hollows
