As part of the last artistic production process, stone sculptures are polished at times with usually floor wax to give that shinny gloss finish. With time the sculpture begins to lose its shine and have scratches if poorly handled. This process is natural and inevitable. It is even faster if the sculpture is outdoors and exposed to extreme weathering elements of nature (rain, cold, snow, sun).
Today I thought I could share with you a few tricks on how to restore that shinny, polished look by yourself in 4 simple steps.
– Clean the sculpture with water, a cloth and or a brush to remove dust and dirt
– Allow to dry
– Heat the sculpture with a Portable Burner until it is warm to hot
– Using a soft brush or cloth, apply natural or lavender floor wax evenly onto the sculpture whilst the sculpture is still warm to hot. Mke sure you do not use an artificially colored wax such as red or black as they will alter the color of the sculpture.
– Allow the sculpture to cool off for a couple of minutes. This allows the wax to be thoroughly absorbed.
– Once the wax has dried and the sculpture has cooled off, start polishing the sculpture with a dry clean mutton cloth.
– Rub the artwork until the shine is back.
– Make sure you do not use unnecessary force when handling your artifact because sculptures are actually very fragile and break if they fall.
If still you do not get the desired results or the sculpture is broken, feel free to contat us for assistance on email email@example.com.
