All artwork is designed and made in New Zealand and is suitable for indoor and outdoors use. All artwork is finished by hand, therefore some variation between the same product can occur. This is not considered a fault.
Lisa's artwork comes ready to hanging using 12mm deep hanging blocks that are attached to the back of each work. These are custom made and make the artwork "pop" out from the wall for added impact. Art can be hung using screws, nails or hooks (not included), liquid nails, 3M Picture Hanging strips (indoor use only) or external foam tape.
Please ensure you follow the manufacturer's instructions and use the appropriate number of screws or hooks or tape, dependent on the size and weight of your art.
Artwork must be hung on the longest hanging block as this is the load bearing block. Words eg. hello, home and kia ora are designed to be hung vertically.
Rope artwork is designed to be hung on a hook or wall dot - using the rope. Any blocks on the back are not load bearing, they are to ensure artwork lies evenly against the wall. They can be secured with blu tack or hanging strips, as required. There are so many fabulous ways to tie the rope so have fun experimenting.
Address signs come with 5mm holes to hang with screws (not included). They can also be hung with standoffs to make them pop off the wall. Standoffs are sold separately.
Individual house numbers come with either nipple/cup attachments, to screw up (screws are included) or with channels or acrylic dots on the back if not wanting to pierce the wall/house/fence.
MATT BLACK/WHITE STEEL
Lisa uses high grade 304 quality stainless steel for her black and white collections. Artwork has a Dulux "Electro" coating - a UV resistant durable product designed for architectrual use. Art can be wiped clean with a clean damp cloth then dried with a clean dry cloth.
Lisa's stainless designs use high grade 304 or, where required and for house numbers, 316 marine grade quality brushed stainless steel. Stainless steel’s resistance to corrosion and staining, low maintenance, and attractive lustre make it an ideal choice for indoor or outdoor art.
A complimentary "Brilliance" Wipe is included with your purchase to enhance your art, as required. The Brilliance non-toxic wipe cleans and shines, leaving a protective coating against smudging, markings, and finger prints on stainless steel.
Apply Brilliance, as needed, wiping with the grain. Leave on for 10-15 minutes then wipe dry with paper/soft cloth. Do not wipe across vinyl lettering with the wipe.
Additional wipes are available through quality hardware stores.
Lisa uses 3mm New Zealand corten steel for her corten work. Corten is a corrosion resistant steel that, left uncoated, develops an outer layer patina. The patina protects the steel from additional corrosion. Corten looks fabulous if lightly sanded every now and then.
Lisa uses recycled mild steel for her industrial range. It is designed to age and any imperfections (scratches, marks and surface rust) are part of its natural charm. These works are designed to rust slowly and create their own unique patina.
Rust can be removed, as required, either by lightly sanding or using white vinegar. Wipe vinegar on artwork using a paper towel. Leave for a few minutes and then wash off with water. Repeat until desired look is achieved. Spray with oil (cooking oil works well) and polish with a soft cloth.
Art can be rusted faster by wiping with water or sea water.
Art can also be coated with Penetrol (available at quality hardware stores) to stop the rusting process and maintain the look of the artwork at any stage.
