What is Zinc?

Zinc… it is defined from Webster’s dictionary as a “bluish-white metallic element that is ductile when pure but in the commercial form is brittle at ordinary temperatures and becomes ductile on slight heating, occurs abundantly in minerals, is an essential micronutrient for both plants and animals, and is used especially in alloys and as a protective coating in galvanizing iron and steel.”

Now, that is interesting but I figure you are more interested in seeing what metal can look like using the Amy Howard At Home Zinc Solution as well as how zinc has been used in interiors. I absolutely love the finish of Zinc. 

With our Zinc Solution, the finish is one of my favorites especially once the solution has been applied and waxed.

    1. It can only be used on sheet metal to get the desired look of the antiqued zinc.
