Finishes & Care

CLEANING Bronze or Brass whether it is a living finish, lacquered, or plated should be cleaned following these steps:

  • Wipe with a soft, non-abrasive cloth dampened with clean water
  • Wipe dry with a soft, nonabrasive cloth.

Water residue should not be left on the product as chemicals or minerals contained within may damage the protective coating and degrade the finish.

Important: Do not use any abrasive or non-abrasive cleaners or solvents, whether chemical or organic, to clean the products as they may degrade or remove the patina completely. LIVING FINISHES Ashley Norton products go through a multi-step process to make our finishes durable, resistant and long lasting. Dark Oil Rubbed (8), Venetian Bronze (6), Polished Nickel (4B), Unlacquered Brass (3U), Dark Bronze (BZ), White Bronze (WL), Light Bronze (LT), White Medium (WM) are dynamic finishes. These will take on unique as age, climate and touch works their charm, creating an ever-changing patina. Living finishes are designed to age naturally over time. The effects of age, climate, and use will work in conjunction to create unique, contrasted color variations. The most frequently handled areas will highlight as the patina wears off and natural shades of the bronze and brass are exposed. Untouched areas may oxidize further and the combination of colors and hues will accentuate the timeless elegance of the base material.

How quickly this process occurs is dependent upon usage and environmental factors such as climate. The natural aging process will allow the underlying base metal to show through along areas of wear.

If you'd like to preserve your living finish, you can apply a light coating of liquid Carnauba wax to the product with a soft cloth. Perform this periodically - frequency will depend on the specific conditions and location of the installation.
