  • this would be lovely to win…i can see certain pink lavendar, greens with this lovely mix. one can dream :)

  • Jane Morris Coons

    Hmmm, the possibilities are so interesting! With the silver tones I would try grey and icy blue, with maybe a sapphire or two thrown in. With the copper tones I would try greens – all shades of green

  • I love crystal, ivories, and pastels with vintaj patina. Pairing Vintaj brass with those colors looks like Victorian vintage to me :) Yum!

  • Catalina Lomeli

    I would love to mix some fall colors into this! I think whatever I make would look great!

  • Lori

    Orange and red!

  • OOOOOOOOOO this is just the type of stuff I love. I have some lovely sari ribbon in fall colors that would work with these.. I may emboss them first then color them with the patina.. add some freshwater pearls and enameled pieces…

  • Wendi

    Love all the Vintaj products, and have been experimenting with Latinas lately. Would love to try the new metallic ones!

  • Wendi

    Ummm, ok, feeling compelled to correct the above post. That’s patinas, of course. Dang autocorrect.

  • Nancy

    I love the blue patinas so I really want to start with those. But I am loving the new metalics also.

  • I recently bought the Weathered patina set (my 1st) and I love it! The blues and purples and the new metallics are next on my list. Thanks for the chance to win this fabulous giveaway!

  • Sharon Blaisdell

    I have never used any of these products, but I would like to see browns, oranges, blues and some metallics. Maybe some copper. This would be all something new for me if I were to win. I can’t wait to use some of these pantina and see what I can make with them…

  • I would love to win these dyes! I have never worked with dyes but I would love to learn new techniques and experiment with fall colors such as orange, yellows, reds and browns.

  • Lesley Rougeau

    What a terrific giveaway. I would love to win this. It would be something new to learn. As for colours, I would be happy to receive anything.

  • What a great giveaway prize package! I’ve always liked aqua pared with the warm brass of Vintaj. And now that autumn is here, I think a vibrant orange would be beautiful. Thanks for the chance to win!

  • Darla Panizo

    Love these. I see blues and green with these.

  • I would use this collection to design a necklace and earrings. I’d like to try the unique and simple torch effect on the Vintaj natural brass findings and filigrees. Endless possibilities!

  • i would love to try this out

  • Chris

    I am always drawn to the combination of purples and greens with copper. Winter is coming and wouldn’t it be nice to spend it learning and becoming adept at a new technique?

  • What a great set! I’d mix this with natural metal tones, and maybe go for icy winter colors, just to stay ahead of the seasons.

  • Sally Vittorio

    My birthday was yesterday..I would love to win to make myself a nice Vintaj birthday gift…any beautiful piece in any patina color would be just lovely..

  • I think these would look amazing with purples, turquoise, and azure blue.

    Thanks for the chance to win a fabulous prize!

  • I love Vintaj! I love to use earth tones, yellows, oranges, greens and browns. On the other hand bright colors that pop bright pink, turquoise and crystals! So hard to decide.

  • I’m in love with turquoise, green and purple contrasting with the deep browns of Vintaj and the brighter brass relief highlights. Then covering with resin gives such a wonderful 3D depth to a focal piece, I’m definitely addicted to this technique!

  • Mary Ellen

    Such great pieces!!! I would use turquoise, orange and maybe some lime green and of course crystals. The possibilities are endless, as usual, with your pieces. Thanks

  • I would use gold and orange! My latest obsession!

  • Pamela Takeshige

    I would love to try these patina colors on metal. I would try the copper patina Green and the cool Icy blue,, separately and combination. But I want to experiment with all the colors.

  • Mary Reckmeyer

    I would take my inspiration from the fall colors, scarlet, golden yellow, and orange. Mixed metals are so popular now the new metallic patinas will just expand the creativity.

  • Sue D

    I’ve been using a fall palate lately — green, brick, and plum., with copper or mixing copper and brass.

  • Tera Larson

    Would love to deck these out in some great fall tones… like Rust, Cinnibar and Clay. Maybe add a little Moss. Gorgeous!!

  • Lots of pretty things! I would certainly go with mostly Fall colors. Purples, greens, rust, mustard yellow…so many options!

  • Wow! Thank you for the opportunity to win these, what a fantastic set of items. I’m such an earth tones gal, so I would naturally pick a rusty orange, dark browns, and perhaps a hue of blue in there to give some contrast. I love the Ancient Coin Collection Patina set.

  • stella becker

    the pintas in purple and blue and the metlaic ones it would be great to have since i can not find them.

  • So many to choose from. I think with Fall starting I would use browns and oranges for some of them and mix it up with whatever else I have on hand.

  • jan hankel

    Wow, what a give-a-way….Vintaj is the best!…love everything. The colors are beautiful…..good luck to me…thanks Vintage for the great chance to win such a wonderful package

  • Jen W

    Hmmm, maybe some dark purples, plums, paired with light greens! Perfect for the changing of the seasons!

  • OMG! I just learned how to use these at a wonderful workshop!! My heart says to go with the brass and silver over a yellow orange. Good luck everyone!

  • Samantha Bagley

    I would definnitely go with fall colors at this point in time some lovely yellows and oranges. Also could put some aside for spring time with greens and blues. Oh the possibilities :)

  • Donna D

    Blues and greens. Lovely.

  • Linda

    I love Vintaj anything, everything! They have the most awesome stock around and the possibilities are only limited by the imagination. I tend to favor teal and/or patina green combined with orange/rust. I enamel so there’s a lot that can still be done by fusing glass to the blanks, especially the copper ones, or running the blanks through the Vintaj Sissix Big Kick machine! I could write a book! lol

  • Jamie Greer

    I would use fall colors. My favorite!

  • I think my sea foam green and teal beach glass would look wonderful with all the Vintaj components and patinas. I love using Vintaj Brass in my designs.

  • On some, I would love to try lavender or blue with silver overtones, and teal with copper. I love these pieces!

  • Carol K

    Oh what fun it is to play, and bead and bead and bead all day!

  • Jelyho

    I will use “Clay”, “Moss”, “Lettuce” and “verdigris”.

  • Kari

    Bright, beautiful fall colors! Oranges, Greens, Reds, and some bright Blue to represent the fall sky!

  • LTodd

    Love Vintaj – and I love green, gold, and dark red

  • melanie flory

    I love using metals with blues and greens. I like muted colors with a little touch of metal.

  • Kim Stewart

    Since I haven’t tried this yet, I don’t know. I just know this is something that I’ve wanted to get in to.
