Make your vehicle stand out from the crowd by creating or preserving its one-of-a-kind patina.

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.

Author Kevin Tetz of Paintucation delivers the first book ever on the many variables involved with patina. With the step-by-step instruction, Kevin guides 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. Currently, the genre is ripe with creation.

With tens of millions of potential projects to consider, finding the right car or truck to patina shouldn’t be a problem. And now you will have the perfect book to guide you through the patina process.rn
