Jenkins Antiquing Fluid 500ml:

Preparation: Remove any metal lacquer using paint stripper or similar solvents.

Thoroughly remove and clean any grease or oil, including fingerprints, with Meths or White Spirit and Ultra Fine Steel Wool (0000), rinse with cold water, then wipe or blow dry.

Please note, proper preparation of the surface is essential if a uniform colour is to be achieved.

Application: Dilute the Antiquing Fluid approx 1:10 with water. Apply the diluted Antiquing Fluid directly onto the item, using either cotton wool or a brush, watch the surface quickly change colour.

Alternatively, the item may be immersed in the solution until the colour change is achieved. Contact time may vary depending on the item being treated, but 2 - 10 minutes is average.

Gently move the item whilst immersed to dislodge any air bubbles that may result in bright spots on the metal.

Post Treatment: After the desired colour has been achieved, immediately rinse thoroughly in cold water.

Failure to rinse the item properly will result in a continued chemical reaction even when dry and a powdery residue may build up on the surface.

To protect and seal the aged effect, we recommend using Renaissance Wax, which is a clear micro-crystalline wax that can be used internally or externally.

A dilute alkaline rinse is also advisable to neutralize any residual acids. If available, a hot air dryer or oven should be used to dry the item afterwards. Wipe off any powdery residue with a sponge. Apply Jade Oil to remove any remaining moisture and to fix the colour.
