BRONZE – A hand-rubbed natural chemical wash creates a classic golden-brown patina which highlights detail and texture. This finish prevents fingerprints and allows even aging.
VERDIGRIS – This hand-rubbed treatment is a realistic gray/green-patina of the surface of the copper simulating antique copper.
BLACK OXIDE – A hand-rubbed chemical treatment designed to create a dark patina on copper for those who prefer the look of weathered wrought iron.
Special Request Finishes (additional charge)
GOLD ENAMEL – Our Hand brushed gold enamel is a great, inexpensive alternative to gold leaf and less expensive to maintain. A gold enameled weathervane is striking against a clear blue sky or green trees.
TINNED – Lead/tin coated is bonded by heat onto the surface of the copper to prevent a verdigris patina or stain on other parts of the building. It will not stain your stone, brick, or other masonry.
ACCENTS – Use Gold, tin, and enamel to accent details of a figure or add gold leaf to a fully verdigris figure for an authentic aged gold finish.
CLEAR COAT – A quality clear coat finish will keep your copper from tarnishing. Be sure to re-coat it periodically to maintain that fresh copper color.
COLORED FINISH – High quality enamel or powder coating in any color. Evoke a folk art style, add bold detail, or a realistic look.
CUSTOM FINISHES – Combine the techniques above for a creative unique finish!
