Patination Specialists Est. 1989

Capisco will endeavour to keep our spirits up and your work completed. Our small and loyal workforce will only be prevented from working if the virus strikes at one of them. We are asking all our clients not to visit the works but to try and conduct meetings via the telephone, internet, or Skype. This is likely to last through April but we will update and react accordingly.
Keep safe.

Capisco’s patinations are all hand applied maintaining the integrity of our fine art history. The codes we use are unique to our processes. We can achieve uniformity over 1000’s of panels or deliberately make each panel individual. The base alloy 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.

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.

We also offer architectural patination of steel to a basic dark black with a waxed finish. The surface of steel needs to be prepared by others – either blasting, sanding or acid cleaning before delivery to our works.

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