What the industry is saying
Unlike today’s current applications that lend themselves to surface inefficiency, irregularity, and decay, effects using powder coating can give architecture, automotive, and home goods more controlled evenness and realistic natural looks consumers are demanding.
Here’s what some of our industry survey takers have to say about artistic patina powder-coated finishes:
Simulates the positive effects of weather and time, while in reality, being brand new and ready for years of use.
Looks aged but is very durable.
I have a current client that is looking for a finish just like this.

Traditional methods are problematic & expensive.
Current methods in the market today are acids and chemical mixtures. They create one of two outcomes, living finishes or faux painted finishes. Most are caustic and include solvents that are harmful to the environment and the applicator.
Here are some other limitations:
- Aqueous solutions, such as anodizing, are fallible if done improperly and reflect older production methods.
- These traditional methods can be slow due to dry times between coats.
- Clean-up is messy and may require extra floor space or ventilation during the curing process.
- Countries are limiting large-scale production.
Examples of aged copper, aging copper & failed paint methods
Today’s applications are toxic, messy & expensive
Due to restrictions and laws forbidding the use of such products, it puts downward pressure on the future of artistic finish methods, while demand continues to grow.
Additionally, dye-sublimation is an expensive alternative but its uses are limited when it comes to small part production & custom fabrications.
Tired of waiting for the paint to dry? Me too.
As a +20 yr. veteran of painting & restoration, I was inspired to create a new twist on achieving a realistic patina copper effect to metal in a non-traditional way.
Today’s liquid painted, naturally occurring or induced living finishes lend themselves to surface decay & inefficiency.
Our powder effects create a consistently layered finish needed to accomplish any size job. These powder coated performance finishes are better and faster to produce than traditional liquid faux applications.
That’s something faux painters just can’t do!

Collaborating with one of Hawaii’s top fabricators inspired Ross Scott, owner of Maui Powder Works, to create this innovated powder effect to ignite a new genre of architectural faux finishes.
By using Powder Effects our company has been able to answer the most frustrating thing clients ask in powder coating today..What does powder coat look like brushed? Can I get a copper patina? Can I get it to look like blackened steel? Now we have that answer!

Imagine This! Patinas Ready from Day 1
I’m introducing a new twist to achieving a realistic patina copper effect on metal in a non-traditional way. We call it perfect patina in paradise and it’s just one of the many effects created.
It was my unique background as a master painter that challenged me to capitalize and create this finish. Could it be done?
Speed in production using industrial powder coatings as a creative force intrigued me the most. It was my muse and yet it’s a painter’s crux. They are bound by this rule or risk losing the quality of the effect they are trying to create if not heeded.
Today’s powder coatings.
The current culture around powder coating doesn’t lend itself easily to visual innovation. It relies upon industry standards like single or two-coat systems as common methods to produce metal coatings. Lately, the focus has been mainly on margin & equipment to move the industry rather than developing better skill-based methods.
The limited availability for customers seeking aged, distressed & patinated finishes are not from a lack of demand but rather ability.
That is until now.
I’ve used similar techniques to produce other exotic finishes, including weathered steel, stone, marbling & wood effects.
