Bronze Polished

Bronze is an alloy of copper, often containing a small percentage of tin and the addition of other metals such as aluminium, manganese, nickel or zinc. It has been used throughout time in industrial applications and is a favourite for sculpture. We coat our bronze with Renaissance Wax which provides a barrier to slow ageing and oxidisation, while maintaining a natural appearance.

Care instructions

Bronze has a tendency to oxidise when exposed to air or direct contact with skin. Our bronze is coated with Renaissance Wax to slow the oxidisation process. To maintain the wax barrier over time, we recommend occasionally reapplying Renaissance Wax following the manufacturer’s instructions. The patina that develops as a result of oxidisation is a natural and beautiful part of the life of the bronze product and does not require polishing. If, however, if you prefer to remove the patina, it is important to regularly clean the bronze using a bronze polish such as Brasso, and to clean the entire surface at once. After cleaning, use a non-aggressive, multipurpose cleaning solvent to degrease the product such as CT1 Multi-Solve, applied with a clean soft cloth. Once the bronze has been cleaned, reapply Renaissance Wax to the entire surface, following the manufacturer’s instructions.

Do NOT use abrasives, ammonia, products containing ammonia, or any other corrosive cleaning solutions as this can damage the bronze. Prevention is the best protection against surface scratches.
