What is Patina Paint?
If you are not too sure, I will try and explain....
Patina, is a the chemical process that tarnishes metals, most commonly seen when copper turns green. This tarnish is a combination of chemical compounds that actually protect the metal itself, and in many cases can have an aesthetical value. Hence patina paints have been developed to replicate this look.
Creating this kind of look is commonly called distressing.
A good example of patina, would be the Statue of Liberty in New York, as this is in fact made of copper.
