    Just made this sample to tender for a job for a local interior design/shop fitting company, if it hits the brief and they like it, we will get the job putting this finish on two large bartops of a newly refurbished boutique hotel.

    Thanks @Tomcio it is Verometal in copper.
    I am not the best with a camera so the pictures don't quite do it justice, the camera can't quite pick out the warmth and depth of colour and finish that the naked eye can see.
    The product is copper metal powder suspended in a polyester resin spray applied, textured, then this sample has been bought up with various grades of wire wool then finished with 3000 trizact to leave a satin type finish.

    The copper has been specified by the client for a few reasons.
    It is trendy and fashionable.
    The warmth and depth of the colour, especially sitting atop of walnut built bars.
    And finally this copper is naturally antimicrobial so an uninhabitable surface for bacteria to live on, not antiviral though so won't make a difference with things like covid.

    The only issue is we have informed the client that the finish would be better to be clearcoated, this is because if left to the open air the finish will start to oxidise like copper does and go very dull and start to patinate so will need polishing from time to keep looking fresh. We have specified a clear matt 2k with added silver ion additive so the bartops remain antibacterial.
