About Copper Patina Finishes | Patina Samples

Copper - A 'Living Finish'

Copper belongs to a family of metals that has what is known as a 'living finish'.  Left untreated, copper interacts with its environment and naturally deepens in tone over time.  As it deepens, it passes through a range of colors beginning with a pinkish, salmon-like color and progresses through a series of russet browns until it stabilizes to a final deep, rich tone.  The speed of change and the depth of its final color are determined by a variety of factors that work in unison and is totally unique to each individual piece of copper.   

An 'Aged' Look

Most of our copper sinks, bathtubs and accessories are completed with one of our five proprietary, patina finishes.  Application of the patina actually 'helps' copper along in its darkening process by accelerating then slowing (and in some instances, completely arresting), copper's natural progression in color. 

Patina finishes give our kitchen sinks, bathroom sinks, vessel sinks, bath tubs and accessories a unique, antique-like or 'aged' appearance, even though our products are absolutely brand new.

We Guarantee Our Finishes 

Using processes that have been perfected through the years, our patina finishes are mixed and applied by hand, to each piece individually.  The finish is an acid-based mixture that is actually 'fired' into the sink, tub or accessory, causing the patina to become embedded into the material.

Our patina finishes last and are warranted against fading or rubbing off, as long as the item is properly maintained and cared for. 

Patina Color Variations

Because the actual piece of copper used in each piece 'takes' the patina finish differently, no two kitchen sinks, bathroom sinks, vessel sinks, bath tubs or accessories ever turn out exactly alike.  When completed, each piece ends up with a patina that falls within a range of color tones (from lighter to darker), within one of our five different patina finish categories outlined below. 

Patina colorations are influenced by the material, the temperature (both climatic and of the piece itself), and by the Artist that mixes, applies and works with the patina.  It is the combination of these elements that ultimately dictates the product's final tone and guarantees you always receive an original item with a beauty and tone uniquely its own.

Scroll down the page for a detailed sampling of our six categories of available finishes.  Most are available for all products. 

Caring for Copper

You'll love the fact that copper kitchen sinks, bathroom sinks, vessel sinks and bathtubs require very little, if any, maintenance.  Without any effort on your part, they will retain their beautiful color and condition for years on end and actually become even more beautiful as they age!

Patina Samples ____________________________________________________

Patina Sample - Medium (Clara) Finish
'Clara'
(medium)
Medium ('Clara') Patina Finish
A rich, deep, warm 'copper-ie' look and feel.  This finish will slowly deepen in color and tone over time as it 'migrates' toward a more authentic and rich antique look.

Patina Sample - Dark (Obscura) Finish
'Obscura'
(dark)
Dark ('Obscura') Patina Finish
A rich, deep, dark finish yielding an immediate, 'aged' or 'antique-like' look and feel.  Products with this finish are pretty much at their final stage of coloration and will experience very little, if any, color progression over time.

Patina Sample - Natural Finish
'Natural'
(natural)
Natural ('Partially Oxidized') Finish
Items finished in this manner are subject to a continuous and natural process of oxidation.  They begin their journey with a classic, 'pinkish', salmon-like color and  'migrate' to a darker color and tone over time.  Color and tone changes will be on-going and will most likely be noticeable at once.  The progression of oxidation and the final color/tone will differ from piece to piece and depend on geographical location and local humidity factors.

Patina Sample - Gold (Dorada) Finish
'Dorada'
(gold)
Gold ('Dorada') Iridescent Patina
Our exclusive, this 'gold-ish' patina finish gives the item more of a contemporary look and feel.  After applying the patina, the piece is coated with a light, lacquer finish that literally dances as it reflects the color schemes of the surrounding environment.  This finish will not change in color over time, however you will need to re-apply the lacquer coating from time-to-time.  Let your eye be your guide.  When the finish begins to dull, it's time to apply a light coat of lacquer.
