This is a great product, very easy to use, after 3 years of using it, I wouldn’t even think about using any other brand. All of the products from STEEL F/X have exceeded my expectations. Thanks Bill.

I am new to metal art. When I began cutting designs, I could only give them a black finish. I purchased your products and now I am able to combine patinas to give my designs an outstanding finish that my customers love.

This combo exceeded our expectations by a mile. We have some other samples at http://www.rezit.org
I’ve been eyeing Bills Patina starter kits for the past 2 years, as we came in and out of producing metal art and selling to customers. The past 6 months we’ve really dived heavy into producing metal art, primarily working in stainless steel now for popular patriotic pieces and mild steel for monograms and personal name signs. With our two main product lines locked in, I have really been wanting to branch out into more patina’d designs and finishes and man oh man was I ready to get my hands on these patina sprays. I ordered one of the starter kits to test them out, and just now today I used the COPPER F/X on a new cross design which produced an amazingly bright and clean finish. I then went through with the TORCH F/X to add some beautiful reds and blues. Can’t say enough about how awesome it turned out! Clear-coat is drying now and I can’t wait to get it up for sale on our website to see how our customers react to it.
As of right now I’m literally here on this exact page looking at the concentrates and larger sizes of COPPER F/X because I can already tell I’m going to really start using this stuff on more and more of our metal art & decor designs.
5 stars to you Bill, great stuff!

I have been using this product for a couple of years now. I make steel tap handles for a local Brewery. For the look on the tap handles I do two layers one being a fine mist. I would recommend this product to anyone looking to do metal art.

Your product arrived very promptly! I had purchased another brand prior to reading about your product and watching your videos. Today was my first time ever using any patinas. I’m a potter branching out… I’ve got to say hands down your products had nicer and quicker results! Thanks a lot Bill…. Let the new addiction begin!
SUPER CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!

The product works really well!!!! What impressed me more than the product was Bill’s customer service. He went above and beyond and gave me a bunch of very useful tips/information.
He earned my loyalty as a customer. So, if you haven’t purchased from STEEL F/X, you’ll like the product and you’ll like Bill’s dedication to his products and customers.

My Boss ordered the COPPER F/X for his salmon metal art and it turned out awesome! Very impressive how easy it was to use too. So, now i just have to have some! I’m going to try my hand at some of my own metal art and you can bet i will be using the COPPER F/X on this. (its going to be COOL!) 🙂

COPPER F/X is one of my favorite patinas! Works very well !
The COPPER F/X works like Magic!! Very easy to use. I am going to be a customer for a long time!!! I love all of the products I’ve bought so far! (The Dyes Set, Patina Starter Kit). Now I’m buying it by the gallon. ..

This is the easiest and best looking way to achieve a copper plating on steel. COPPER F/X makes my artwork come alive with color. Being the base coat for most of the other Patinas, the COPPER F/X is by far my most used product from STEEL F/X. I had a bit of a learning curve with this new product but one quick call to Bill at STEEL F/X had me working magic on steel in no time.
My customers love the look I create with all the Patinas and the cost savings too compared to solid copper metal.
Pick up a copy of his book on Patinas, it is a time saver and good reference to fall back on.
Thank you Steel F/X and Bill for a great product and customer service.

COPPER F/X produces the most beautiful copper color on steel in mere seconds. Washing it off promptly is the key to maintaining that beautiful copper. But if you are adventurous and leave it on longer, it will surprise you with more possibilities. I love these patinas.

I did some experimenting with the COPPER F/X and RUST F/X. They are both so simple to use. I was trying to create an aged and weathered patina on a outdoor steel sign. I was very pleased with the results and my client loves the sign. It really is amazing how you can take a bright and shiny new piece of steel and transform it into old, antique and rusted in a matter of hours. Great products!

I must admit, I was rather apprehensive about placing my first order with Steel F/X. Today I opened my first order and I was immediately impressed with the way it was packaged. Then I pulled out my bottle of Copper F/X, read the instructions on the bottle and applied it on two different projects. WOW, it was simple and I was very impressed. Now I feel like a fool, for not buying your products before I bought all the small squeeze bottles and tubes of other stuff, looking for the finish I found with Copper F/X. I can’t wait to try the metal dyes in my air brush. I’m over-the-top pleased with your product.

We’ve been in the metal art business for just over a year now and have used this product in combination with other patinas as well on the majority of our pieces! Easy to use, beautiful results, and the customers are more than satisfied. Thanks, Bill!

Bill–Can’t wait to use our new airbrushing system and our dyes with the Copper FX! Can’t make our lanterns fast enough and know that the dyes will save us on time. With the upcoming Holiday season approaching, and with our determination to do it with just the two of us to keep the products personal, anything that is a timesaver is welcomed. Everything we use with the Steel FX name on it comes out beautiful and unique. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for helping us make my vision a reality. Come to New Orleans and visit us anytime! Rita and Mike

This is a must have product in our shop. We started using this product around December, and it still amazes us every time. Bill you are a genius and we wouldn’t do business anywhere else. You have been great to us and we really appreciate everything that you have done for us!

We just started our metal business the first of the year and learned about Steel-FX from Scott at ArcLight. We ordered the sampler patina kit to start and quickly ordered larger quantities of Copper FX, Black FX, and several others based on the amazing results we got. We can’t emphasize enough how our customers are amazed by the copper patina. They always ask if our products are made from copper. It’s THAT good! From being in construction for 25 years to becoming a metal artist using Bill’s FX products is nothing short of a life changer. The Steel-FX patinas WILL be a major reason why your products sell.

I would love to send you a photo. I will be trying more of your patinas. Also, your videos are very helpful!!! Thank you!!! Linda

Bill, Your patinas are a major hit! I just finished a 2 day trade show and sold so many things done up with the Copper FX. No one in my area has ever seen anything like it !!!!!! I sold 10 painted black items and all of the patina coated items (36 peices 😀 ) I made more money in 2 days because of bills patinas than a week on the oil rigs! Now that feels good!!
thanks Bill, your products rock the metal art world!! Dustan K, Canada

I just wanted to give a shout out to Bill at Steel F/X. I was interested in ordering some of his Copper F/X and had a few questions for him.
I gave him a call and he spent over a half an hour telling me all about Copper F/X and how to use it. He was very informative and a really nice guy. I can’t wait to get the Copper F/X and make some cool stuff. Thanks Bill!

I just received your Copper FX, Torch FX & Blu FX. Tested the copper and torch on a piece of scrap steel – WOW was that easy!! Now I have to start writing down all the ideas that I have rolling around in my head… James M.
