Have some furniture or fixtures that could use
a little character…or an old age worn look? Get it to Earthen
Exposure and have it transformed in to a piece that looks like it
could tell your great grandparents a story! The end goal is always
the look of authenticity. The wood is worked in areas that would
receive wear naturally and the metal patinas are real, not synthetic
What can I, or am I willing to distress?
Any thing made of copper, brass or wood. Some objects however, depending
on existing finish and style, lend themselves better than others
for a quality look. For that reason, only select objects will be
accepted. Email photos of what you want distressed or better yet,
bring the object to me for inspection.
A few examples are below.
||German made hammered copper
light fixture with chemical free patina.
|Brass light fixture
with chemical free patina. Hung with twisted abaca rope crimped
with reclaimed copper wire.
A cheap assembly line frame given a "handmade"
age worn look.
|Repainted tourist trap “tribal
mask” with the addition of cordage cornrows and light
If you are not comfortable with uncertainties,
this distressing service may not be for you. Only a certain amount
of control is possible and there is always the risk the finished
object will not be as you envisioned. Once an object is distressed,
it can not restored to its original state.
