Swellegant Dye-Oxide - Spruce

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.

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.
