Installation & care instructions

Due to the strong interest in the sculptures of the Strassacker Edition, we would now like to offer our customers the opportunity to download the instructions for care and assembly. This provides a detailed description of what is necessary to firmly anchor the purchased bronze objects on the ground.

Thank you and congratulations on your purchase of a Strassacker bronze work. To ensure you have many years of enjoyment of your art object, please take a few minutes to read the information on proper care and assembly.
 
The surface of our products is active patina applie d using handicraft
techniques. It cannot withstand any contamination caused by residual glue or mechanical abrasives. Use only clear water and a sponge for cleaning. Impurities such as bird droppings or fruit acids can only be removed by the company Strassacker. 

Patina

The patina is the last step in the production of our bronze objects. The patineur anticipates the natural process of oxidation. For this purpose, various patination solutions made according to old, traditional recipes are used. The bronze object is first dipped into a patina bath for a specified period. Then more patination solutions are applied by hand and burned in with a gas flame. This allows each special colour nuance and shade to be achieved. Finally, the patinated surface is sealed. Due to the chemical reactions of this handicraft-artistic process, slight colour variations are always possible! Depending on
which influence the copper alloy is exposed to, the bronze surface changes over time. 
 

Cleaning and care

Strassacker bronze objects are processed, patinated and coated with a protective varnish with meticulous craftsmanship. To maintain this varnish as long as possible, we recommend wiping off the accumulated dirt several times a year with a damp cloth without using detergents. 
To ensure you have lots of fun with your purchased item, please follow these instructions. The stonemason, the trusted specialist, will be happy to assist you with any special mounting and large sculptures. We will gladly help you to find a specialist company.
