What can I use to simulate metal finishes?

Sculpt Nouveau has an extensive line of coatings and patinas including bronze, copper, pewter, mauve, iron, and brass. These are water based finishes which can be applied to almost ANY substrate, and when dry will give the look and feel of real metal. Their product was originally formulated to re-coat tin roofs so it is definitely an exterior product.It can be brushed, sprayed, wiped, or applied with a sponge depending on which textures you want to achieve. After the initial application there are over 2,000 patinas and waxes which will let you "age" your piece to whatever era you are trying to achieve.
