There was a time when a heavily weathered collector car or truck was
considered a bit of an eyesore. In fact, if you brought one of these
vehicles to a car show more than likely you would receive grief for
showing a car with faded paint and surface rust. But not anymore. The
era of patina on vehicles has been fully embraced, and rightfully so.
Currently the genre is ripe with creation. Kevin Tetz of Paintucation®
has delivered the first book ever on the many variables involved with
patina. In step-by-step format, Kevin walks you through creating patina
from existing paint, preserving *already there* patina, and painting
patina (steel, plastic, glass). Each process is unique and requires its
own set of skills, procedures, and tools.
With tens of millions of potential projects to consider, finding the
right car or truck to patina shouldn’t be a problem. And now with
Patina: How to Create & Preserve you will have the perfect book to guide
you through the patina process.
