For the Patinated Bronze finish, an oil rubbing of the existing Bronze gives an aged appearance, darkening the vibrant Bronze colour into a rich organic hue.
This chemically-aged finish will wear over time to expose the bronze underneath. This finish will feature lighter areas at points of contact where the bronze has been rubbed back to a golden tone.
Water and chemical-based cleaners, soaps or abrasive materials will damage the finish and should not be used. We recommend cleaning with a soft lint-free cloth, followed by a beeswax protectant. As the finish is unlacquered, regular application of the wax will be necessary to maintain the original chemically patinated finish.
The raw materials selected for Casts will undergo an evolution in their surface texture. While these products will arrive with a vivid finish, exposure to time, touch, and environment will ensure they develop their own distinctive character.
All Casts pieces are supplied with a thin wax coating which protects the original patina. The natural breakdown of this protective wax will accelerate changes in tonality and patination. Finish variation is to be expected and embraced.
