Hello to an abandon fisheries, Hello to borders, Hello to chlorinated chicken, Goodbye to Labour.

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.

Our skilled patinators have carried out special projects in Jersey, Ireland, France, Holland, Sweden, Germany and as far away as Australia. If your project requires this approach please discuss with us how to plan ahead.
