Using Bister


Bister is a water-based liquid used to create a beautiful patina on sculptures and other mixed media.

Original Bister is a premixed sepia-toned liquid.

Bister Powders offer a wider variety of other colors. These are concentrated powder colors that are mixed with distilled water to create a sprayable patina. They can be sprayed on textured surfaces to darken and accent recesses or crackled areas. Create aged effects on paintings and other mixed media. Projects created with Bister must be sealed after drying.
Bister is not water-resistant.
