Patina Options

Each piece is custom finished. Depending on a sculpture’s texture and level of detail, the look of a patina can vary. A slight variation in color from order-to-order is to be expected.

Unless otherwise noted, our reproductions are hand-cast in plaster and reinforced with burlap, fiber strands, and/or metal rods for extra strength.


FLAT WHITE: A unified, matte white finish. This is the optimum patina for cast drawing as it allows focus on form.


WHITE PATINA: A white finish with a light ivory tone added to the top surfaces.


LIGHT ANTIQUE PLASTER: A soft mixture of whites, grays, and yellows to replicate the look of an aged plaster cast.


ANTIQUE PLASTER: A dramatic mixture of grays and yellows to replicate the look of an aged plaster cast.


BRONZE: A rich brown finish with golden highlights to replicate the look of bronze.


STONE: A mixture of lighter tones to resemble natural stone.


DARK STONE: A mixture of darker tones to resemble natural stone.


SANDSTONE: A soft base color with warm highlights to resemble the look of natural sandstone.


TERRA COTTA: A variation of warm tones to resemble terra cotta.
