Surface Finishes for Metal
A well-crafted metal piece isn't finished once it has been forged. To protect it and modify its look after crafting, blacksmiths use metal finishes and coatings. Unique formulas provide individual levels of protection and polish, which allows craftsmen to maximize the potential beauty and durability of metal products on a piece-by-piece basis.
Metal Finishes and Coatings for Professional Blacksmiths
Smithing experts vary the use of their favorite metal finishes depending on what type of product they are creating and its intended use. The ingredients that make up a quality metal coating are combined to favor protection or polish:
Metal Oil - Oils help fight off ultraviolet radiation and corrosion from exposure to inclement weather or harsh environments.
Beeswax - Usable as a lubricant, sealer, or polish, beeswax metal finish provides a natural alternative to chemical-based oils and protectants.
Patina - A gloss or sheen, usually green or brown, meant to mimic the effects of oxidation while providing superior shielding.
