2mm & 3mm Mild Steel - This steel will rust if placed outside and also inside if it gets damp. Mild Steel will also get a flakey surface when rusted so once it gets to the rusted look that you like we suggest you seal it with a clear lacquer to stop it from rusting further.
For the sealed option we coat the artwork in Penetrol, a clear lacquer which stops any moisture getting into the steel. The artwork can then be placed inside or outside without the worry of it rusting.
The finish is a silver/grey natural steel colour.
All of our painted artwork is sealed first with Penetrol then we paint it with generally Matte Black - of if you would like another colour then please let us know.
Also known as Carbon Steel or Rusting Steel, Corten is the best option for outdoors if you want your artwork to rust.
It is a high tensile weathering steel that gets a lovely patina over time and doesn't flake like Mild Steel.
Not all of our pieces can be cut from Corten due to the detail in the artwork.
