Concrete Oxidation & Liquid Metal

Intro to the course

This course is aimed at those that have already completed our 4 day intro course, are familiar with Novacolor products but, wish to learn about all of these three specific finishes, concrete, oxidation and Liquid Metal.

For finishes like concrete, this is really about having something that looks like actual concrete, by adding detail, colour and shading. Equally with oxidation we will learn how not only does this improve or change over time, but how to apply in a way that really feels like genuine rust. For liquid metal, after application it’s all about the polish, making sure the detail has the impact within any larger wall or space.

These are great products for urban designs, typically seen in restaurants and bars, where the surfaces needed must look good but also be durable and stand the test of time.
