PatinaFinishes now available

Pewter, Bronze, and Black Patina Finishes
Portella is now offering Pewter, Bronze, and Black chemically etched finishes.  This project for a private residence in Santa Barbara is finished in Pewter.  Our exterior wet glazing has been custom color matched to our new patina finishes.  Patina finishes are etched into the steel, creating a life time finish that will not peel or fade.  A flat polyurethane top coat is applied over the patinated steel.
