This is a metal tray with some glass. It can be made in a variety of shapes and sizes. But the metal pieces that come out of the side of the tray are a perfect example of how metal can only be used with this kind of design. Other materials would be fragile and would break easily.

This is a very simple but lovely metal candleholder. We can make it smaller or add many more layers or candles. This kind of base or a similar one could be used to develop a chandelier.

Home Decor Tray with White Marble

This small tray shows how metal and marble can work together. As the marble is heavy, the metal is the best material to hold it. Using white marble and metal, we can create a variety of shapes, designs, and sizes.

We love how this metal candle holder looks like a birdcage. The design is simple but, again, is a great example of how only metal can be used to make this kind of design. This candle holder can be placed in the center of the table or hung up.

What is Gold Leafing Used in Home Decor Products?

The Gold leafing material is hammered gold. Some gold leaves manufactured today are hammered copper or gold mixed with other metals and alloys. The gold leaf is manufactured through the process of gold beating. The method of gold beating is to beat or press the gold into skinny sheets of paper. This gold-beating technique was discovered over 5,000 years ago. Today, the gold leaf finish has many wonderful uses in home decor and home furniture product development.

What is the Brass and Bronze Material Used In Home Decor Products?

Brass and bronze are both copper alloys, but brass is copper with zinc, and bronze material is copper with tin. The material can look similar but have different properties and uses. When brass or bronze is made into home decor products, many times, they will be sand cast, they will use lost wax, or they may even have what is called an investment mold technique. Each production method has different uses and prices for the mold that can affect the overall production costs.
