Custom liquid metal finishes

HOW WE WORK

ARTWORK

We work with Photoshop, Illustrator, .jpg, .tiff and most image formats to create bespoke artwork

SAMPLES

We frequently create bespoke samples to ensure the surfaces achieve the results you are looking for.

MANUFACTURE

We manufacture surfaces and products with a wide range of surfaces textures and effects, in a variety of materials.

ENGINEERING

With a background in design, engineering and  manufacturing we ensure beautifully engineered products.

INSTALLATION

Our design for manufacture approach ensures your installation will run as smoothly as possible.

COMPLETION

Our attention to detail helps ensure our projects are completed successfully to the highest standards.

We can manufacture surfaces using a variety of different techniques and processes to achieve a wide range of different textures and effects. The surfaces we supply can be in a range of metals, metal-faced concrete, or liquid metal coated substrates.

Cast metals

We have produced cast aluminium, bronze and zinc surfaces. For a prestigious fashion house we produced over 180m2 of sandcast aluminium surfaces which were textured and finished with a bronze finish.

Metal-faced concrete

By combining metal powders with concrete we can produce metal-faced concrete which has the look and feel of a variety of different metals. By using relief moulds, we create luxurious and beautiful metallic surfaces by combining our moulding technology with our expertise in casting and manufacturing.

Liquid metal surfaces

Using ‘liquid metal’ techniques either sprayed or poured into our moulds we can achieve much better results with minimal loss of detail compared to approaches which coat the surface. The liquid metal picks up all the detail from the mould and can be laminated to a wide range of materials. This technique can also be used to produce lightweight, metallic surfaces.

Textures

At Graphic Relief we design and manufacture surfaces using a variety of different techniques and effects, including photographic detail and relief textures. We use use texture to create light & dark areas, with highlights & shadows which change throughout the day.

The flexibility of our moulding process allows us to work with digital images and manipulate them to create relief moulds and textures.

By developing textures from 2D images we are able to highlight specific aspects  of elements of the design to create a richer overall effect. This approach can be used to create geometric, organic, textile, arabesque, Islamic and contemporary textures.

Pattern Design

We can create one-off, bespoke surfaces or can incorporate various pattern and graphic design effects. This allows artwork, logos and branding themes to be included. It is also possible to combine various layering effects to create both simple and complex designs, incorporating illustration, photographic, geometric, arabesque and textile effects.
