• The Blow Torch Portion of the Patina Process to create somber and antique patinas

The Patina Process


Product Description

A copper product's "Patina" refers to the finish that is applied to the product. It is brought about by accelerating the oxidation of copper. Temperature is the magic ingredient. Each copper product is placed on an open fire and heated until the natural colors of copper arise. The colors that arise will depend on the temperature of the fire and the wood used in that fire. Different wood types may create different colors. Once the colors arise, the product will be cooled and then, depending on the patina of choice, will be heated with a torch to enhance the patina. The copper smiths with whom we work do not use any chemicals, stains, or artificial finishes. A wax is last applied to protect the patina and aid in water runoff. In every workshop, the patina process is the secret to the individuality of the piece. This is why patinas will vary across workshops and even within a workshop.
