A guide to our product finishes, care & maintenance

Light Bee’s Wax
The finished piece is heated in the fire and individually dipped into a hot liquid bees wax mixture. This is a traditional finish for interior use, we do not recommend this for exterior use. The finish is aesthetically pleasing to the eye, allowing the ironwork to showcase its natural appearance.



This durable finish is suitable for interior and exterior use. We offer a range of paint choices. Please contact us for more information.




Galvanised & Acid Etched

Oldfield Forge recommend any exterior ironwork to be galvanised. This protects the ironwork from any weathering and is maintenance free. A high bright lustre appearance.

We offer the option for the product to be acid etched, which gives the ironwork a more natural, less lustre and manufactured look. This finish requires no maintenance and recommended for exterior conditions.

The finish enhances the darkness of the steel, showing the beauty and quality of the hand-crafted ironwork effect. Thus gives a more natural look and feel than painting. We do not recommend this finish for exterior use.



Wire-brushed & Lacquered
This finish is brushed to a gun metal style finish, before being sealed with matt lacquer. Suitable for interior use.





Stainless Steel
This modern steel requires no seal, we simply brush the product to a sheen, portraying its bright, yet beautiful nature.




Grate Polish
Suitable as a heat-proof natural finish and is mainly used as a fire accessory finish.
