Application

Apply the Antiquing Fluid directly onto the item, using either cotton wool or a brush, and watch the surface quickly change colour. When the desired colour is achieved, rinse immediately with clean water or weak alkaline solution and pat dry with a cotton cloth. Alternatively, dilute with 10 parts water and immerse item to ensure a uniform colour change, this process is recommended when treating more than one item. Apply some agitation to prevent high spots caused by tiny air bubbles. After treating, items can be sealed with a wax, oil or lacquer.
