Renaissance wax was first developed by The British Museum (by Dr. A E A Werner) in the 1950s as an acid-free preserving wax which would not damage antique artefacts, unlike many other waxes available. This wax is used to preserve patina on antique furniture along with many other uses. It is useful for jewellery cleaning and for sealing metal after using a metal colouring patination fluid. It prevents the oxidisation of metal, keeps tools from rusting and acts as an invisible protective finishing wax on a range of materials.
With protective properties, it forms an invisible barrier that resists unsightly fingerprints as well as the potentially damaging effects of smears and spillages. Can be used on a range of materials from, Wood, Ceramics, Polymer, Clay, Resin, Metals and Leather.
