Is the color durable?
The color is brought up on the surface of the metal with heat.  The colors do not fade over the years. When metal dyes are used the color does not fade. These dye formulas have been worked with so that they are longlasting.
 
Are the pieces indoor or outdoor pieces?
The pieces are indoor pieces with the exception of putting a piece out of the sun and direct weather. For example if you put it on a wall on your porch with no direct sun or weather it will be okay.   If you want a piece for outdoors please contact us and for $5.00 extra an outdoor coating will be applied.
 
Is there any maintenance for these pieces?
No. If it gets dusty then it is suggested to use a feather duster or moisture free canned dust remover. Never use anything on the surface other than a feather duster,soft cloth, or moisture free canned air.
