You asked for it…we’ve got it!
Renaissance Wax is here and it’s flying off the shelf. When I first heard we were going to carry Renaissance Wax, I’m pretty sure I did a little happy dance and let out a squeal. I adore using Renaissance Wax on my finished BRONZclay™ pieces to seal in the rich color of the bronze. But it’s not limited to just bronze, the wax works on any metal—silver, copper, brass, you name it, it’ll work.
Renaissance Wax is super easy to use. When I asked Mark Nelson what he liked about it most he said, “This is soooooo much easier to use than lacquer. Simply rub it on, let it dry and buff with a soft rag,” he says. “I have a piece over 20-years-old on a shelf that I used it on and it looks great still. It will wear off of jewelry but it’s easy to reapply.”
One of the best things about Renaissance Wax is its versatility. You can use it on more than just metal or jewelry. Here’s a list of other things it’s great for:
- Wood carvings and furniture – the wax enhances the patterns in the wood and protects existing finishes.
- Sculptures – stone, metal and wood sculptures all benefit from a quick coat of Renaissance Wax. It adds to the luster and surface appearance.
- Marble – Protects the surface of marble, cutting down on costly repairs.
- Paper (this is one of my favorites!) – Use Renaissance wax to waterproof kites and paper airplanes.
- Leather – shine your shoes with it!
- Instruments – Care for guitars, violins and other wood-bodied instruments by adding a layer of Renaissance Wax to the surface. It protects the surface from the acids and oils transferred from the player.
- The list goes on and on – if it needs protecting, call on Renaissance Wax!
