1. Uniformly abraded and polished finishes are more prone to showing scratches, especially when perpendicular to the grain. Complete re-graining of the entire surface may be necessary in extreme situations.

Important Facts About Stiles Patina Finishes

Patina finishes offer a natural color variation as opposed to paint or anodizing. The irregular patterns, color intensities and substrate metal all play a part in the ambience of a patina finish. In addition, each individual artist will produce a slightly different "application signature" to the piece. If you require a finish that is perfectly uniform in appearance, we suggest you specify a Tnemec or powder coated finish rather than a patina (metallic paints and powders available).

Optional Clear Coat

An optional high-performance factory-applied clear coat is available in matte, satin, or semi-gloss sheens. If no clear coat is specified, the patina finish (or natural bronze) will age naturally over time.
NOTE: Finish samples will be provided for approval at time of order. Special finishes available. Contact factory for more information.
