JAX Pewter Black - 2oz
Specially formulated to produce a dark, black, antique finish on pewter, lead, brass, bronze, copper, nickel, tin-lead alloys and solders.
Using JAX Pewter Black is simple:
Prepare and clean the surface to be treated
Apply the JAX Pewter Black
Wash the JAX off the metal when the metal is slightly darker than your desired finish
Use steel wool, a polishing cloth, or Scotch-Brite to achieve your desired finish
Wash again with water and dry.
To ensure the best results, clean your metal of all lacquer, oil, grease and wax. JAX manufactures metal cleaners that are optimal for prepping your metal, but there is no one cleaner that will guarantee perfection. Your choice of cleaner depends on what you are trying to remove from your metal. Regardless of what you use to clean your metal, we recommend using Dawn Dishwashing Liquid as the final step before applying the JAX Pewter Black.
Wearing gloves is highly recommended so you don't introduce oils from your hands to the metal. To be safe, eye protection is always recommended.
