What is a Patina?


A patina is the coloring of a bronze statue and the final step in the casting process.  A patina is not paint but instead a chemical reaction that occurs when certain chemicals react with the metal.  Unfinished bronze is actually gold in color until the patina is added.  Different chemicals will produce different colors and Bronzeman specializes in creating very unique patinas.  Unlike paint, a patina won't chip and will remain on the bronze sculpture even when placed outdoors.
