Does anyone know what shade of cooper paint were they were using on the Luminaire? The paint on the blade seems to be sprayed on while the spreader fins seem to be hand painted. Also what is the look called with the black and cooper?

It might be copper oxide, which is not a paint process.

Not sure if it was a paint or some other process. Don't know anything about the copper oxide process. What ever they did with the spreader it looks like it was applied with a brush.
