Patination Specialists Est. 1989

Capisco’s patinations are all hand applied maintaining the integrity of our fine art history. The codes we use are unique to Capisco. We can achieve uniformity over 1000’s of panels or deliberately make each panel individual. The base alloy, cast or sheet, needs to contain copper so brass, bronze, copper will all patinate successfully. The patinations are finished with a hard wax for external or internal use.

We also offer basic dark black patination of steel with a hard wax finish. The surface of steel needs to be prepared by others – either blasting, sanding or acid cleaning before delivery to our works. The patination will not prevent rust if exposed internally to damp or externally to rain.

All patinations will react to local ground conditions and local weather conditions. This is usually salt spotting or water marks. It is difficult to predict when and how much maintenance may be needed so we recommend an annual inspection to assess what action may be required.

Please discuss with the office if your project needs to be patinated in situ due to unavoidable installation requirements.

Now in our 31th year we are a company you can trust.

Our deepest sympathy to the family of Sir Davis Amess. A tragic murder achieving nothing either in protest or ideology.
