100% perfect unmarked mint condition. How do I clean and maintain a bronze sculpture? Remove dust with a damp cloth. Do not use metal objects or wire brushes to clean the sculpture. Do not apply abrasives or cleansers that will possibly scratch the finish.
Use to remove stubborn stains. Zud cleans all metal surfaces including bronze. Zud can be used in powder or liquid form.
Lemon Oil - Apply a small amount of oil with a paintbrush or soft cloth. Cover the entire figure with oil. Wipe the surface gently with a soft cloth to take off the excess oil. Paste Wax- A very thin, even coat of wax should be applied with a soft cloth.
Allow the wax to sit and dry before polishing. Wax should be applied after bronze has been cleaned and dried. Do not apply if using lemon oil. Do Nothing: Many bronze owners prefer to sit back and enjoy the natural reaction and aging process of their sculpture. Bronze is an alloy dating back to 4500 BCE composed of varying amounts copper and tin.Though pre-dated by another bronze alloy combining copper with arsenic, tin bronze has remained relatively unchanged since its discovery in the 3rd millennium BCE. Two forms of tin bronze were used during the Bronze Age, mild bronze which was 6% tin, hammered thin, and used for objects such as armor and classic bronze, a composite with 10% tin that is still used for casting objects today. The alloy is particularly strong, ductile, and, because its oxidation process prevents corrosion, extremely durable. The material is in fact so durable, that despite the earliest known cast bronze dating back to 2500 BCE, there are comparatively few examples of large bronze casts because, as boundaries changed and kings fell, they were often melted down and repurposed.
The alloy has been used around the world since antiquity, including by the ancient Greeks, who considered it the highest form of sculpture and were the first to scale bronze figures to life-size. It remains the most desired material for monumental statuary.
As bronze ages, verdigris a blue-green patina forms on the surface. This is caused by the oxidation of the alloy during which a very superficial layer reacts to the oxygen in the air and becomes copper carbonate.
This verdigris acts as a shield preventing any significant corrosion, but can also be easily removed without harming the sculptures integrity or durability. This should be done with a specialized bronze cleaner and a soft sponge.
Bronze is an inherently durable alloy which, with some care, can retain its original condition and quality for decades and centuries. What should I look for in a bronze sculpture?
Though Bronze has remained relatively unchanged since the alloy combining copper and tin was first discovered, a sculptures quality is still very dependent on how well it is cast. Various defects, such as gas porosity the formation of bubbles within the cooled casting or coldfront the imperfect fusion of two fronts of liquid metal can affect the alloys strength, appearance, and durability. Important things to note when determining the quality of a bronze sculpture include the exactness of the casting to the artists model, particularly its surface texture quality and the accuracy of subtle details such as fingers.The patina which develops naturally on the surface of the sculpture can indicate the quality of the alloy used. The color of the patina can vary from reddish to warm brown, green, or even yellow depending on the amount of copper in the alloy. Regardless of its color or whether it is naturally occurring or has been induced with chemical substances, the patina should be even and richly hued.
Particularly thick or dark patinas are often used to hide flaws in lower-quality casting. We offer the best prices around on high quality products.
