Care & Treatment of Ironwork

FINISH We use three distinct finishes for our ironwork. They are untreated or a rusted finish, hand-painted in a traditional black matt or a black satin powder-coated finish.

  • Metal that is untreated or rusted can be painted, sprayed or oiled. Untreated metal will rust quickly if left outdoors.
  • If you wish to hand-paint, use a metal primer and specialist metal paint, e.g. Hammerite.
  • If you wish to oil your sculpture, WD-40 can be used. Once sprayed on, it evaporates leaving a protective film that will help keep the original metal colour longer.
Powder coating is a low-maintenance metal finish. It is a professional treatment whereby the paint is "cooked" onto the metal. Other powder-coated colours are an optional extra.
