Turning Green...Naturally

Turning green...naturally.

We have always loved green at Utopia and this month we seem to be bathed in it! Our passion for verdigris also shows no abating with the creation of both new lights and lamps. So, if you love it too, then do keep a watch out on the website and in the gallery for more to come.

What is verdigris? Here’s some basic chemistry. Natural verdigris is the term used for a bluish green patina that appears as a crustation on copper, brass and bronze that has been weathered over time from the exposure to air or seawater (atmospheric oxidisation). A hastened finish can be achieved through the application of acetic acid to the metal, although this never looks the same as it lacks the natural depth and range of greens and blues that natural oxidisation achieves.
