Use a very small amount to polish and protect your finished image transfers. Buff with a soft cloth. Add a second coat if desired. The wax retains a matte finish that will protect against weathering and tarnish. Also great for polishing resin, wood, leather, and furniture. It is archival and is the #1 choice of major museums and art galleries. A little goes a long way! This wax is also popular for securing colours achieved with Liver of Sulphur on metal. It comes in a 65ml pot.
I'm not the guy that says easily such thing about a product! But it's worth this title! Forget about Krylon, nitrocellulose, acrylics lacquers, ProtectaClear and whatnot! After I bought Renaissance Wax, I coated with it most of copper patina jewelry I did and even after a month or so, those pieces are looking exact the same, as in the day were Renaissance waxed and remember: it not have that cheap look a shiny lacquered surface has; those pieces have the pure metal look like are not coated with anything. Just dab gently a clean white cotton fabric in the wax tin and then rub vigorously the surface to protect. I leave it a few minutes to dry, then I shine it with a plastic bristle, usually a toothbrush if the object is small and with intricacies, or with a nail brush, if it's a larger surface (as I did with painted tin plates from Peru, I bought from a flea market), or with a wood sculpture, etc. I discovered I can use it on carbon steel tools. Usually those tools are either heavily oiled, or heavily rusted. Not anymore! The wax give a special and interesting shine to the carbon steel and not letting it to rust anymore while is not oiled at all. Unbelievable! For example, after I cleaned and then waxed an old tailor scissors, which belonged to my great-great-mother, those scissors became my favorite sheet shears which I'm using daily. Can you believe that those scissors, still didn't get any rust or oxidation for more than a month? Anything of importance that could rust, oxidize or degrade due to humidity, it's waxed with this marvelous product. And this wax secret is, it works the best, when the coating is extremely thin! It wasn't even a visible dent into the wax tin, after intense usage and mind you, I bough the smallest tin; so economical it is. Some people complaining of it's pungent petroleum smell. Yes, it smells like the old times shoe-wax. But I really adore the smell after all the good this wax is doing to me!
I was curious about this product and decided to try to give lustre and protection to metal jewellery pieces. It really does what it says. Also, it came with a guide about the product which is highly appreciated. It's true a little goes a long way, you only need a tiny amount.
