Event Details

4 Saturdays, 2-4PM: October 5th, 12th, 19th, and 26th

This 4 session course will cover the preparation of metal surfaces for a range of patina techniques.

Application of hot and cold patina formulas on a variety of metals will be explored. Steel, copper, brass, aluminum, zinc and stainless steel can be textured and colored to produce a nearly limitless range of colors. Methods of preserving the finishes will also be addressed in detail.

Fine decorative finishes can raise a piece of metalwork to high craft. By understanding the interaction of surface and finish it is possible to add real beauty and value to your work.

Justin is an artist, trained as an industrial designer who has honed his craft in production environments. He founded LIGHTFAST Design and Build in 2011, a unique and multifaceted company that offers custom fabrication, contract metal finishing, consultations, and training to architecture & design firms, classrooms, and fellow fabricators.
