Bronze Firescreens

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the much appreciated compliments.

Liver of sulfur can be obtained at most chemical supply houses, and comes in stinky chunks that need to be broken up and dissolved in warm water. I used a spray bottle to mist the screens. The color change is almost immediate depending upon the solution concentration. I found it best to start with a weak solution, simply a guesstimation so to speak. The bronze finish was not clear coated as it is considered a "living finish" and will continue to age.

The bronze screen was purchased from Howard Wire in San Francisco. It is about $10/sq ft. They also carry copper screen.
