Today, we are talking about weld houses, contemporary coffee table, um, that has a reclaimed sheet metal tabletop. Um, there are trace amounts of the original gray, gray paint. Um, but most of it is worn off and bears a metal patina. Um, so in reference to a patina coffee table, for those of you who don’t know a patina is from the Italian word, um, and it represents a green or brownish color. Um, we at weld house feel that Katina adds character to our coffee tables. Um, a greener Brown film on the surface of bronze or similar metals, um, is produced by oxidation over a long period of time. Um, a gloss or sheen is placed over the surface, um, resulting in preservation of the aging process. Um, we are going to talk with Sparky, who is our painter here at weld house. Um, and he is going to give us more details on our patina coffee tables and the processes used in creating and painting. Hey Sparky. So tell me a little bit, um, what kind of finishes do we use on our patina coffee tables?
Well, we used an HYP, um, high gloss, clear coat on our reclaimed sheet metal, tabletop saturated, specially formulated for grabs this bond and raw materials. So it’s, we’ve worked on various different things so that we can achieve the hardest, um, the hardest, clear to protect the metal into patina, into patina spots that we’re trying to protect our fruit of the actual metal, the raw metal. And so we’re trying to save that characteristic of the metal because each one’s different and each one has sowed beauty. So that’s why we came up with, uh, a high-end clear gloss that has a nice shine to it. Like automotive, Clair beds durable. It will last throughout the years.
That sounds awesome. So we’re able, uh, to preserve the character of all of our patina tables, um, through our research that we’ve done on the products We use. Correct. Cool. Can you tell me a little bit more about your role here at Wells? My role as a special painter, I am, uh, I’m the one who tries to create the pickiness to match what is existing and, uh, and preserve what is existing. That way we don’t lose the losing natural beauty of, of, uh, of something that’s been around for awhile. Okay, cool. Sparky. Um, can you kind of walk me through, um, the process that you use, um, in creating the patina coffee table?
Okay. First we get to the raw metal and then I take it into booth and then I cleaned it. I use a wax of grease mover that will take out of all impurities oils, fingerprints, whatever, I’ll take it off the metal. And once that’s done, I laid down an poxy primary industrial epoxy primer. That’s really hard and durable and it seals the metal. Then after that, I start laying colors down to achieve the patina effect, and I use different techniques to create different, different looks, but a lot of it’s overlays of colors, the colors that have what’s that’s dead will come back. It will sand it and take out any imperfections. It will make it the patina, certain colors come through. It will allow certain colors to stay there. And then certain colors come through to add a cer certain vibrance to it. And then when that’s done, then I’ll put the high end clear-coat on there. I’ll put like prior three or four coats, and then that will still EV all the artwork and the patina and the metal and everything. And you get your high end finish from that.
