MakeItMetal is real metal and should be treated as such. As metal ages it naturally develops its own look. To avoid damaging the metal finish and to protect the natural beauty, please follow the Care and Cleaning Instructions carefully.
These finishes have patina applied to enhance the finish. Harsh cleaners such as Vim and other abrasive cleaners will damage the finish. Mineral oil is an oil based polish so a wax or oil based cleaner may be used to maintain the oil rubbed appearance and minimize spotting.
To remove unwanted green (due to moisture) from antique and oil rub finishes use a small amount of non-abrasive metal polish with a soft cloth. To remove excess Verdi or to lighten oil rubbed and antique finishes extra fine steel wool along with a small amount of non-abrasive metal polish may do the trick.
In 2010 MakeItMetal brought the art of cold metal spray to Canada at our St. Catharines ON location. Since then, we have taken on large and small projects, all the while perfecting our process and technique. Our capabilities are only limited by imagination. MakeItMetal can help develop your idea or work through the process from scratch. We are more than willing to sit with you to discuss your vision and help make it a reality.

At MIM it is business as usual as our shop has been up-to-date with new distancing rules for some time now, and we always wear the proper PPE. If you plan to visit, please call ahead to make an appointment as we have a limit on the number of visitors we can accommodate at one time during the current pandemic, and all visitors must wear gloves and a mask covering the nose and mouth. Online sample orders will be filled in the normal fashion. We are grateful for your custom and cooperation.
