Renaissance wax polish was originally formulated in the British Museum research laboratories in the early 1950's, in response to a discussion amongst museum technicians at an international conference on fine-art conservation.
In accelerated ageing tests, the British Museum scientist found that all current commercial waxes based on the usual natural waxes (beeswax and carnauba wax) contained acids which, in time, could spoil original finishes on national historic collections of furniture. He rejected them all and investigated the new so-called 'fossil' or microcrystalline waxes being refined out of crude oil. With their distinct characteristics depending on their geographical origins, the new 'man-made' waxes could be accurately blended to meet the needs of many industries, from cosmetics and pharmaceuticals to heavy engineering. Thus, the waxes combined Nature's best qualities with the advantages of modern technology.
The blend which emerged from that research was 'designed' for long-term protection of all classes of museum exhibits. At last museum technicians and others caring for important collections could use wax polish that neither caused future conservation problems nor detracted from the intrinsic values of their treasures.
Can be used on the following surfaces: Wood, leather, paper, Bone, pearl and mother of pearl, gemstones, any kind of metal, photographic prints, enamel, fiberglass, granite, and on and on
Apply a very thin layer with any soft cloth (a t-shirt will work Fine!), Buff gently, and the surface is sealed and protected beneath a hard coat of wax
A great way to finish off your jewelry pieces, especially if they are handled a lot at shows and exhibits
