Patination and finishing for metal castings
Patination is the process whereby colours are rendered to metal castings by the application of various chemicals and dyes. It is the final stage in the production of a sculpture and often one of the most exciting.
The finishes are mostly achieved using various combinations of different layers of chemicals with heat, to achieve the desired effects. This crucial stage transforms the bronze casting, enhancing and enriching the sculpture and truly bringing it to life.
We encourage the artist to be present at this stage, so that together we may achieve the exact finish they require. After this has been achieved, wax is applied to enhance the colour and protect the surface.
