Copper Polished

Copper is a beautiful metal that has long been used in art and architecture. It is has a reddish-orange colour which over time develops a green patina. We coat our copper with Renaissance Wax which provides a barrier to slow ageing and oxidisation, while maintaining a natural appearance.

Care instructions

Copper has a tendency to oxidise when exposed to air. Our copper 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 copper product and does not require polishing. If however if you prefer to remove the patina, it is important to regularly clean your polished copper with Brasso or other copper polish, according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Once the copper has been cleaned, reapply Renaissance Wax to the entire surface, following the manufacturer’s instructions.
Do NOT use ammonia, products containing ammonia, or any other corrosive cleaning solutions as this can damage the copper. Prevention is the best protection against surface scratches.
