Large metal tile art panels are an exceptional and unique alternative to abstract paintings. My background in contemporary, abstract painting inspires me to use the chemicals as if they were paints. This technique creates very beautiful, unique wall art. (However, painting is much faster. With acids and bases, it can take weeks to slowly develop the colors and design I want.) The colors are light-fast and permanent, which can’t be said for many paints.
These large round metal tiles are very beautiful and an excellent alternative to woven metal wall art and acrylic paintings
In appearance, these copper tile wall art designs remind me of slices of the beautiful geological specimens that you find in Natural History museums. Final steps include completely thoroughly drying the patina, sealing it with a clear acrylic varnish, and framing, preferably with a museum style frame. I create round metal frames for the round designs. Because these large art tiles are metal mounted to wood, the larger ones are rather heavy. Plan on two people and two hooks when installing.
Please note: Each patina is unique and different. Colors can be emulated but do not match paint chips. Designs can be similar but not exactly the same. Do not expect a patina that looks like a map to repeat that design. You get what you get with patinas. Patinas are not paints!
