All of our artwork can be ordered in a range of finishes.
RAW MILD STEEL
Most of our detailed pieces can only be cut from 2mm Mild NZ Steel. When placed outside this will rust & flake unless it is sealed. You can purchase a sealer from your local hardware store.
If you want your artwork to have the rusted look, then pop it outside and once it’s rusted you can then seal it to stop it rusting any further.
If you don’t want the rusted look you can either seal it to have the natural steel look or seal and paint it.
Depending on where you are placing your artwork, ask your local hardware store what sealer would suit best.
Also known as weathering steel Corten is designed to rust but not flake and rust away like Mild Steel.
We cut our Corten artwork out of 3mm gauge steel.
Our Corten pieces are not pre-rusted. If you want them to rust quickly place them outside and spray them with white vinegar or salt water to speed up the process.
PAINTED & POWDER COATED OPTIONS
We also offer painted & powder coated options. If you would like your artwork painted a different colour than what is listed then please contact us.
Painted & powder coated pieces can be placed outdoors but please bare in mind that if you screw through the artwork then the dampness can get into the steel and it will eventually start to rust.
Please allow up to 15 days for painted pieces.
HANGING YOUR ARTWORK
We suggest using a small nail or screw and use one of the existing cutouts to hang your artwork. Alternatively a magnet works well also which can be purchased from Mitre 10.
All of our designs can be cut larger than advertised. If you would like a different size them please contact us
