Novacan Black Patina
Novacan Black Patina is the gold standard in patina brands. Easy to apply Novacan Black Patina imparts a deep, rich black finish to both lead and solder. When cleaned and properly polished, the black comes up to a dark, traditional look. The finish can be reduced to an antique black-bronze look with a vigorous polishing. Premixed and ready to use. Sold by 8 ounce bottle.
