Weathervane Finish

Natural Copper - Our copper weathervane are real copper and will age to a natural patina overtime. The weatherane will turn brown, black, and then patina green. The speed process for which it will patina is competed in accordance with Mother Nature's Wishes. Normally within about 5-7 years it should have a nice green patina forming.

Patina Copper Weathervane

We apply two – three or even four coats of patina chemical to your copper weathervane to give it an instant aged patina look.

After we get a solid looking patina, we add a clear coat glue sealant over the patina so that the patina will adhere to the metal better over time. Each weathervane patina can be slightly different in color, but your weathervane will turn a darker patina over a few weeks as it sits out in the elements.

Please note that patina is not paint – it is an accelerated acid wash solution we apply to help the speed up process of patina to the copper.

Clear Industrial Polyurethane on Copper Weathervane

If selected at checkout, we will apply three coats of Clear Industrial Polyurethane to your weathervane so that the copper will not change colors from brown, black to patina. This Clear Industrial Polyurethane will help keep your weathervane looking new.

This Industrial Polyurethane process can also be done by the weathervane owner by purchasing the industrial polyurethane from a supplier. You can find industrial lacquer from numerous sources.

Every few years you will need to reapply an industrial polyurethane to your weathervane and weathervane parts to keep it looking new.

Over time if not reapplied, mother nature will wear off the industrial polyurethane and change your copper with the elements to a natural patina green. This change will be based on where your weathervane location is located. The warmer states tend to speed up this process so you may have to reapply your clear industrial lacquer every few years to avoid the changes mother nature wishes to make.
