Oil Rubbed Bronze finish is a chemically darkened surface designed

The Oil Rubbed Bronze finish is a chemically darkened surface designed to simulate aged bronze.

This finish is very dark and varies from a deep chocolate brown to a dark gray and usually has copper undertones.

There is quite a variety of interpretations of this finish in the hardware industry and all oil rubbed bronze finishes do nor match.

We have 4 steps to finish this style: 

Stept1: We need to have a copperplating on the surface of the steel part.

Stept2: We have dark black on the copper surface.

Stept3: Have a satin surface by hand.

Stept4: Spray painting with gloss oil for protection.

From the process, you can see that the finish can be various interpretations. And since there is oil protection on the surface, it can be various colors from different angles when you take photos.
