Several finishes are available that can change the
appearance of your copper fountain to the look you desire.
Below, you will see the finishes that are available with our
fountains. Much like silver tarnishes and steel rusts, copper
will also oxidize and eventually acquire a blue-green verdigris patina
when exposed to oxygen.
Light Dapple Spray
(Light dapple spray of reagent over
natural copper - generally shiny, but helps mask
any fingerprints, spots, etc.)
Heavy Dapple Spray
(Heavier dapple spray of reagent -
looks pitted, but it isn't!)
(Liquid Liver of Sulfur sprayed on the natural
copper - the longer it stays on, the darker the aging)
Normally free drawn using a hard paste of a
reagent that will blacken the copper and hasten
the natural green verdigris patina
Normally done with vinyl applications which stick very solidly to the
copper (can be used on most finishes above). A wide
range of colors and fonts are available. Submit the lettering
and your design logo, and we should be able to produce for you a
great business fountain!)
Basically, the opposite of the logo process, we can do just about
any design imaginable. We apply a sheet of adhesive vinyl that
has been cut with the desired design, peal off the "negative"
leaving the areas to be darkened exposed. Then
we apply the darkening reagents to the exposed copper, and the longer the
reagent stays, the darker the silhouette effect becomes. Use
your imagination, because we can stencil just about any shape!
