TEXTURE & FINISH OPTIONS


Raw / Unfinished

Raw / Unfinished products are as the finish name states, raw /unfinished. This means these items are in a natural state and will oxidize or rust. The iron can range from shiny silver to dark charcoal color, if the products have a hammered texture they can also have some red tones from the forge. Since there is no finish these products can oxidize or rust, they may have metal dust or oil on them as well. Products will rust or oxidize at different speeds depending on the level of moisture they are exposed to. This means that the products may begin to rust before they reach their destination, and some raw / unfinished products will have some areas of rust from being stored at our shop before resale. If you are looking for a shiny silver finish please let us know and we can clean them and apply a clear coat or bees wax to preserve that state (this would be an extra charge).

Gunmetal

Gunmetal is an acid finish that stains the metal a blue / dark grey color. This finish color can still have some spots of silver showing through and on hammered items it can have some red in the forged scale. This finish is not suitable for damp or humid environments, for these areas we do recommend a yearly application of beeswax or non yellowing UV resistant clear coat.

PLEASE READ OUR TEXTURE AND FINISH

DISCLAIMER.

Our hand hammered texture and hand painted patina finishes are what sets us appart from all other hardware stores and ornamental iron businesses. Due to the hand finished nature of our products, no two pieces will look perfectly alike. We pride ourselves on our craftsmanship and attention to detail, the hammered textures we apply are meant to be imperfect and flawed to avoid the "stamped" or "machined" look that you find in mass produced items. Our finishes are rust resistant and will occasionally need to be re-coated with a clea coat finish to insure the integrity of the finish.

Our finishes are not rust proof, if you prefer or need a rust proof finish please order your iron products raw and take them to your local powder coater.
