Our Sculpture Wax is based on a formula developed for the National Park Service for use on outdoor sculptures made of brass, copper etc. Sculpture Wax is a blend of Microcrystalline Wax, Polywaxes, and Synthetic Carnauba. We offer two forms of this wax; Sculpture Wax and our ready to use Sculpture Wax Paste.
Our Sculpture Wax is a blend of waxes that comes in the form of one pound cakes approx. 6" x 4-1/2" x 1-1/2" each. To use our Sculpture Wax, the cakes will need to be slowly heated over a double boiler or wax pot (never over an open flame) and applied hot, or once melted allowed to cool at which point a solvent of choice can be added and mixed into the warm, soften wax to produce a soft paste wax that can applied (much like a car wax). Allowed to dry, simply buff the wax to leave behind a protective coating.
Our Sculpture Wax Paste version contains mineral spirits as a softening agent making it ready to apply right out of the can. Apply the wax, allow it to air dry and buff it to a shine. It's as simple as that!
