Caring for your sculpture

 

Each sculpture has a unique, hand-applied patina that will be enhanced by time, and the particular environment in which it is placed. Protection and maintenance of the patina requires regular dusting with a feather duster, or soft cloth. If necessary, the sculpture can be washed with a mild solution of soap and water, dried thoroughly, and buffed lightly. Once a year, if needed, brush the sculpture with a light coat of Johnson’s Paste Wax (using a clean, new paint brush), allowing the bristles of the brush to clean in small crevices. Let the wax dry. Buff softly.

Once the sculpture has been cleaned, allow it to dry thoroughly and then buff with a soft cloth. Once a year, brush the sculpture with a light coat of Ron Young’s clear wax (intended for bronze, brass and copper (and can be purchased at www.ronyoungpatina.com). Use a new natural bristle paint brush to brush the wax onto all areas of the sculpture. Once the wax has been applied, allow it to dry thoroughly and then buff with a soft cloth.
