Copper liquid paint consists of a flexible, weatherproofing material called roof coating.....with copper alloy flakes mixed into the formula. For you, this products offers an attractive copper finish that can be applied over numerous types of surfaces. Since the copper alloy flakes are present, the copper liquid ages to bronze then eventually to patina green.
Dormers and gutters
The use of this product is limited only by imagination. Garden deco items, such as store-bought bird baths, watering cans, boating and marine accessories, wall decor, kitchen features, bathroom items and antique artwork take on new life with a coating of copper paint. Other possibilities include coating a mailbox, or an outside lighting fixture, or a graffiti-covered sculpture. One business from Hawaii decided to paint their outside wooden poles in front of the company door; a user from the Dakotas created a revitalized windmill. And then there was a lady with an alligator statue.
Copper home decor is a popular use. A customer sprayed a temporary plywood stove hood was coated with this copper paint to buy time before completing a project with real copper sheets--that was two years ago. If you have a tin shingle ceiling, old copper flashing or inside pipes, this coating is an eye-catching color, particularly with a clearcoating that will ensure the original luster.
