A clear, protective wax with many uses in the jewellery workshop. Protect silver, copper and other metals from tarnishing and oxidisation, protect antique and coloured patinas using liver of sulphur, protect your workshop tools from rusting. As well as metals, it can be used on a wide range of other materials such as polymer clay, wood, leather and ceramics.

Unlike lacquers, it leaves behind an almost invisible protective layer rather than a shiny coating so it won’t affect the look of your design. Renaissance wax is PH neutral and will not even damage sensitive materials. Even on paper and photographs as it will not stain or darken the paper. 

Renaissance wax was first developed in the early 1950s in the British Museum research laboratories, specifically for the conservation and protection of exhibits where traditional waxes contained acids which could spoil antique furniture and works of art. It has gone on to become one of the most popular conservation wax polishes and is widely used in museums, art galleries and stately homes. It has a micro crystalline structure much finer than totally natural waxes, a quality that is highly efficient for moisture resistance. When applied thinly and rubbed out to a full lustre, the wax film is glass clear, and it remains clear, with no discolouration of the wax or the underlying surface

It is recommended that after an hour of application, apply 2 or 3 further thin coats of the wax, gently buffing each to full shine and allowing about 30 minutes between each coat. Read our advice page on using renaissance wax here.
