Renaissance Wax/Polish

We discovered this great product that I use on my charms. Sterling Silver naturally oxidizes. On top of that I add layers of patina - further oxidizing it. After I get the surface colors I like I remove the top layers creating a relief. After throughly washing in dawn with a brush and steaming clean I let dry in the sun. When completely dry I apply Renaissance Wax to the surface (a little dab will do ya!) and let dry again. This protects the colors I've created and prevents further oxidation. When we're at our shows I pass on this info to other artists and customers if they're interested. It's a great product that can be used on soooo many surfaces. If you visit their link it tells you more.
