Patinas

After the piece is burnished to prepare the surface, our next step is the final finishing. This consists of a few different options. Our most popular finishes are our patinas. These patinas are applied via a chemical dip or spray and then are cleared to seal the metal from the elements. A special UV resistant clear needs to be used for pieces that will be outside, so please let us know if that's the intent for your piece.

We're adding a few more patinas to our list but our most popular are the "Copper", "Flame" and "Bronze". Each finish is completely different depending on the material, burnishing pattern and even the amount of time between coats. Each piece will be unique and the only one truly like it.

Burnished  & Brushed Steel

Burnishing is our first step towards adding some texture or pattens to the metal. After burnishing the steel with various grinders to achieve a certain look, either a clear coat is applied to preserve the look or a color or patina is applied in another step.

Paints, Stains & Powder Coats

Another couple of GREAT finishes are our "Lucid" Paints, Color Stains and Powder Coats.

The "Lucid" paints are a translucent color palette that you can see the texture of the burnished metals through. Mainly Reds, Blues, Purples and Greens and have a high impact effect with bright colors.

Color Stains and Inks

Our Color Stains are very similar to the Lucid Paints, but add a bit more depth and pattern to the finish. Each finish will be completely unique in that they are hand painted and then clear coated.

Powder Coating

Powder Coating is a system where an electrically charged powder is applied to the piece and then baked at around 400 degrees. The colors are across the spectrum with different textures, effects and finishes available. Satins, glosses, neons, high impact colors, transparents, metalic... you name it, there is a finish available. 

We do farm this out to THE top powder coat company in the area and their finish quality is exceptional! Powder coating is available on custom orders only, at an additional charge.
