 Patina在字典上有一個更委婉的解釋「時間的沉澱,歲月的光輝」

Patina also means “the passage of time and the brightness of ages”.

時間的沉澱,歲月的光輝

黃銅廣泛應用於戶外的雕像及庭園裝飾物,是因為只要經過雕像家適當的表面處理及保養,銅像可以歷久常新以及隨著時間的沉澱而變得更美麗。黃銅染色可以追索到中國古代青銅器上的表面顏色處理,而據說現代有系統地紀錄的染色方法源自戰爭時期士兵發現砲彈放在飼養牲口的地方旁,特別在雨天時,銅制的砲彈就會出現染色的效果甚至因砲殼變脆而穿透。一般而言銅有別於鋼鐵會因為銹蝕而影響結構,銅銹只會沉積在金屬表面,例如經常被觸摸的銅像會變回銅原來的金色。

Brass is a material widely used in outdoor and courtyard decorations. With proper finishing and maintenance, the brass statues can be long-lasting in condition or even get more unique. The patination of metal has long history back to ancient China. The systematic records of patination methods started from the war period that the soldiers found the changes of metal color and its hardness specially after rains. Unlike steels, the tarnish of brass/copper just stays on the metal surface, with more touches it will turn back to golden color.

銅染步驟

為了使藥液更好地接觸金屬表面,預先以沙紙及拋光布轆將金屬表面的氧化物及雜質徹底清除。銅染色有不同的技巧,浸染、燻染、敷染等,過程會用到有揮發性的藥液,所以我們工作室配備了專用的抽風設備。

Procedures of Patination

To achieve better patination effects, we have to polish the metal to remove the oxides and impurities on the surface. There’re different patination techniques: soaking, smoking, applying, etc. Our studio is equipped with ventilation set-ups to handle the volatile formulas applied via patination.

藍染手鈪的概念

藍染手鈪是運用黃銅最後會因為汗水油脂而氧化的特性,預先將金屬進行氧化的工序,而鮮艷的藍錄色會隨著時間而磨損,取而代之的是佩戴者以年月沉澱在手鈪上的顏色。銅染由於工藝比較繁複,而且效果不如工業電鍍般可以預期及耐磨,所以不似現在講求流水作業的工業首飾,因此將工藝應用在Playback Concept的首飾產品正是突顯STUDIO JEWELLERY的特點。

The bluish green bangle is a man-made way of oxidation on the metal. Based on the nature of brass, the bluish green color would eventually tarnish according to the change of temperature and humidity by the time you wear it.

Patination is a rather complex craftsmanship, unlike the mass produced products, the application of patination is a highlight of the delicacy our STUDIO JEWELLERY.
