Copper is a rich orange colour when it is first coated onto a front door or other item. When the copper is polished it will be bright and reflective.
The door shown here has a ‘lunar’ texture which is a unique Axolotl method of applying the metal with a slightly cratered appearance. This adds depth and texture.
The Florentine solution accelerates the ageing of the copper so it appears about ten years old after 24 hours. We can then polish this back to reveal fresh copper where required.
