Frequently Asked Questions
What are layers?
Layers are 2 or more pieces of metal placed on top of one another to give us the ability to paint each layer different colors for a more dramatic look. These layers are usually held together with a heavy duty 2 way tape, but sometimes they are attached together with some metal rods for a stand off to give it a 3D look
What is a Torch finish?
A Torch finish is when we use a blow torch to heat the metal to bring out the natural coloring of the metal, resulting in the piece turning different colors of blue, brown and black, making each piece with this finish a one of a kind.
What is powder coating?
Powder coating is a type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. Unlike conventional liquid paint which is delivered via an evaporating solvent, powder coating is typically applied electrostatically and then cured under heat or with ultraviolet light.
It gives each of our pieces of art a nice durable finish protecting it from rust, and gives our torch and Metalcast painted items protection from scratches, sun fading and smudges.
What is Metalcast Paint?
Metalcast Paint is a brand of translucent paint, which allows the grain of the metal to come through, resulting in a very shiny, vibrant piece of metal.
