The Swellegant line is made up of Metal Coatings, Patinas, Dye Oxides and Clear Sealants and are perfect for adding color to your creations!
Each product can be used alone or together to mix and match for endless design possibilities. All the Swellegant products can easily be painted on with a brush and used with a variety of products.
Dye-Oxides are colorants that allow you to add more colors to your projects! These Dye-Oxides are a patina too, in that they soak into the metal and into the patinas to become part of the piece, not just a color that lays on top. They are intensely colored, but transparent, which means you can add them to create just the whisper of color or you can heavily layer them to create an intense tint.
Swellegant has low or no odor and washes up with soap and warm water. All of the products are non-hazardous. Shake all the bottles very thoroughly each time, before you use them.Click Here to download Christi Friesen's step-by-step instructions for tips and tricks to getting the best results!
Colorants and Dye-Oxides for adding colors to metals.
Add the dyes right on top of the Metal Coatings and/or the Patinas. Add one, add two, add all thirteen colors! Use a brush or a sponge to dab the colorant onto the piece. Wipe off any excess.
Let the dye soak in. Check the color in 5 to 10 minutes - you may need to add more dyes to reach the intensity you want.
