Similarly, what is oil rubbed bronze color?
Oil rubbed bronze finishes are chemically darkened to simulate aged bronze. The finish can range from a chocolate brown to gray/green and often includes copper tones with a light and dark appearance.
Also Know, does oil rubbed bronze rub off? Now, over time that dark oil is supposed to rub off with everyday use leaving behind the copper and even some brass showing through. (Think of an older penny.) The second type of Oil Rubbed Bronze is a "non-living" finish; this of course is the exact opposite of the living version.
People also ask, what is the difference between oil rubbed bronze and bronze?
The only real difference between the two different finishes it the color. While both are dark brown in color, oil rubbed bronze contains tiny gold and bronze flecks. A rubbed bronze finish on the other hand, is usually completely solid brown with little to no flecks within.
Does GREY go with oil rubbed bronze?
A light mint or light yellow-green color toned down with a touch of gray will compliment cooler, gunmetal finishes. The added gray tone keeps the color from overwhelming the subtle tones of the oil rubbed bronze. In general, staying with lighter and more neutral colors will help highlight the finish.
