Will my Plaque be Coated with a Patina Finish?

Posted by Sacred Engraving on 1/11/2015

Cast bronze plaques are very special. Time may pass by but bronze plaques are permanent. You're not going to turn around one day and notice that your plaque has faded or that the sentiment it meant to convey has become obsolete. Instead with each passing day the bronze plaque takes on ever more history and a greater importance to what comes after it.  Each of our plaques at Sacred Engravings are complete with a standard patina finish. 

All Patinas, by their very nature, will vary from plaque to plaque and order to order and will change over time. Patina finishes may “bleed” onto the installation surface when installed outside.  Yet they give character and grace to time immemorial – think of older plaques at a cemetery that have been there for many more months and years--will feature varying degrees of the greenish patina, appearing on the surface only, for which both copper and timeless bronze have been known for thousands of years.  

However, even this protective coating will gradually wear off over a period of time by the elements at a pace that's determined by the local climate. This is natural and results in the traditional patina surface tint of aged bronze, a look prized by collectors of ancient bronze art, that actually helps to form a barrier against corrosion in future decades.

A great man once said: "To know where you're going you must first know where you're coming from." Indeed bronze plaques are a great way to remind us of a shared history while we move forward. They remind us of a legacy which is our responsibility to carry on.
