Stone and Base Finishes:
Painted finishes have tones that emulate metal patinas, exotic stones and other unique finishes. These finishes are produced with a uniform appearance throughout the stone with accent colors being more pronounced over textured surfaces. Their sealed surface prolongs their finish and leads to a graceful aging.
With Rococo Stains, no two pieces will ever be alike. Rococo Stains react with the mineral deposits of the concrete so that exact colors, tones and highlights will vary from piece to piece. Water leaves a dark look where it is present with multiple hues emerging between the wet and dry areas. And like any fine sculpture, its patina will change over time and take on a life of its own. Unlike the Stone and Base finishes, the color of the finish may vary from color tile samples and digital images. The purchaser should understand the nature of this process and be comfortable with the characteristics of the Rococo Stains.

Relic Stain finishes:
Relic finishes are achieved through a process of staining the stone. There is a reaction between the relic stain and the concrete’s elements (cement, sand, gravel, and moisture) which give you emerging shades of colors that are unique to that piece. Within its color range each stain will vary from lighter to darker, with some sporadic mottling. Weather and time will soften the tones of the relic finishes. Unlike the Painted finishes, the color of the finish may vary from color tile samples and digital images.

All of Campania patinas are hand applied in a multi-step process, designed to replicate the look of naturally aged materials, the patinas will not prevent the natural aging process that occurs in an outdoor environment. Like stains for wood, each piece will accept Campania patinas in varying degrees of intensity, creating natural variations that add character and distinction to every piece. Even when applied with the same process, no two pieces will look exactly alike due to the composition of the cast stone, and the varying age of the pieces.
*Due to the wide range of color variations and options with our finishes added with computer monitor settings, we recommend that you purchase a color sample before the product is ordered. We ask this in order to make sure the color you order, meets with your expectations.
