Base Material: Brass
Finish Type: Living
This brushed brass has a hand applied antique effect treatment which is then finished with beeswax. To achieve this, the craftsmen apply a chemical treatment which adds a colourant. This process is undertaken several times to achieve the required depth of colour. The piece is hand polished and worked back to the metal to achieve an aged antique look, which is then sealed with wax.
What will happen over time:
This product will age to a natural patina, darkening and dulling to develop its own individual character.
Where can it be used:
We recommend that this finish is used in internal areas, avoiding highly chlorinated environments such as swimming pool areas. This finish can be used in sheltered external areas, although it will patinate faster, and will need regular maintenance.
Wipe clean with soft lint free cloth. This finish is not compatible with chemical-based cleaners, soaps or abrasive materials. We recommend after cleaning, a coating of good quality beeswax is applied. Click here to take a look at our short clip on how to use beeswax polish on our products.
