This year at the Tucson Bead Show we stopped at the Vintaj booth.  They were showing these new Patinas that come in packages of three.  I asked if they could be used on clay and the girls that were doing the demos didn't know.  They were painting metal pieces.  I just found them in the store and sent an email to Ranger asking about the use on polymer clay.  Their answer was, ONLY ON BAKED CLAY and that you would need to use their Glaze to protect it.  The colors are really pretty and you can layer them.
I had these pieces and I wanted to try it.  I put all three colors on the piece on the right and then hit it with a heat gun.  I didn't buy the Vintaj block to sand the piece but I used some sandpaper to take the top layer of paint off.  I don't have the Vintaj Glaze either so I'm thinking I can use PYMII.  I'm going to do a test and put some clay in the middle of this piece and bake it on there and see what happens.  Hope I don't blow up another oven. 
Here is the Vintaj Blog showing how to use the new paints.
I do have to say, once I hit it with the heat gun, it was really hard and set.
Here's a youtube I found about the Patinas.
I'm not getting paid for this, I just wanted you polymer people to know I already did the research.
