Sometimes you get to be a part of something that makes it all worth it and this was one of those projects! Summer is the time for camps, fun, entertainment and did we mention camps?!

Patina can refer to any fading, darkening or other signs of age, which are felt to be natural or unavoidable (or both). The chemical process by which a patina forms or is deliberately induced is called patination, and a work of art coated by a patina is said to be patinated.
We use patina finishes on our metal and zinc products as a color
option but what exactly is patina you ask? The best way to explain it is
that it’s a “process.” Just like things age over time, a patina finish
put on metal/steel or zinc processes to bring out the raw metal
textures, color and enhances the current metal look. Patina is a tarnish
produced by chemical processes that forms on the surface of many types
of metals. When exposed to the elements, a coating of various chemical
compounds, such as oxides and carbonates form on the surface. Using this
process, it creates a weathered appearance on the metal or zinc which
will continue to change over time.
