Bronze Statuary Care & Cleaning Guide

Care & Cleaning Instructions for Outdoor Bronze Statues and Fountains


  1. Removing Stubborn Oxidation with WD40:

– Apply WD40 to the oxidized areas of the bronze.

– Gently rub the surface with a soft, non-abrasive cloth to remove stubborn oxidation.


  1. Applying Clear Wax for Protection:

– Evenly coat the bronze surface with clear wax, ensuring complete coverage.

– Use a soft cloth to buff the wax, creating a protective layer against environmental elements.


  1. Deep Penetration with a Blowtorch:

– Safely use a blowtorch to heat the clear wax on the bronze.

– Allow the molten wax to penetrate deep into the crevices, forming a lasting barrier against oxidation.


  1. Tailored Care for Coastal Areas:

– In coastal regions with higher salt levels, increase the frequency of maintenance.

– Pay extra attention to cleaning and waxing to counteract the corrosive effects of salt in the air.


Remember to follow safety guidelines when using a blowtorch and ensure proper ventilation. Regularly inspect and care for your bronze pieces to maintain their timeless beauty.
