This beautiful skirted tub is simply gorgeous. It has a copper leafed exterior that has been prematurely aged using specially prepared patina formulations. This is not a faux painted finish.This is not a glitzy tub and in fact the exterior finish is relatively subdued and subtle. While the exterior definitely looks like metal, it shows what appears to be the effects of natural aging on the surface.
The exterior of the tub is sanded and primed ready for application. After copper leafing the exterior of the tub, we apply aging agents to allow discoloration of the leaf to mimic the effects of nature. To protect the outer surface, we then apply three coats of protective clear lacquer which makes cleaning and maintenance the simplest of jobs. Just a wipe with a soft cloth will remove any mark or stain.
