We were contacted by the deAurora Showroom about refinishing cast bronze letters that make up their logo. Their color scheme has changed, and the existing look had to go:
They had originally applied a green patina that emulated natural corrosion, and the idea was to give them more of an oiled bronze look, which is essentially the same as our statuary finish.
These letters are made of a very nice, heavy bronze, so we had zero concerns about the state of the underlying metal. We gave them a dip in some acid and hit them with our polishing equipment to strip off the patina. Then we coated them in our special statuary sauce to give the desired look. deAurora also wanted the edges of the letters to be darker, so the face of the letters would pop. Since the mixture we use for this finish lightens as it’s rubbed, we didn’t touch the sides, while giving the faces a standard rub.
Here is how they turned out:
Finally, we applied our indoor clear-coat lacquer to lock in the look, so it will last as long as deAurora likes it.
