Paints and Patinas

A high quality metal work project needs a durable finish to protect the work from the elements and from daily use. Besides the durability, there is also a matter of aesthetics. What color do you want the ironwork to be? Do you want your railing painted classic black? Or perhaps white to match your white picket fence? Or are you going for a blackened finish for the table you are making for your client?
