Oil rubbed bronze finish
I have a subcontractor that is telling me he can not match a control sample of oil rubbed bronze can someone tell me what the process is for do this finish and or why he may not be able to match the control sample I was given to match. My subcontractors 1st submittal was much more orange than the control sample is.George B [last name deleted for privacy by Editor]

The oil rubbed bronze finish is an applied finish which is very difficult to match anything existing. It also is constantly changing and has to be redone after time.Steve Demers

So...I'm guessing there is little chance I can get this finish in a veneer/laminate?Derek Straayer
