Today, Dave Dedecker of Sculpture Services of Colorado power washed and hot waxed two of my sculptures in Fort Collins and Loveland, not too far from each other. Master Swimmer is located at EPIC in Fort Collins, Colorado and Sowing Seeds at Mountain View Presbyterian Church in Loveland.
It is recommended that every year or two a good cleaning and wax is applied to outdoor sculpture, depending on their location to renew the sculptures to their original look. Over time the wax will thin out exposing the lacquer and patina surface of a bronze, which if gone uncared for any further will begin to oxidize the surface of the bronze. Today, with the weather warming up to the mid 60’s it was a perfect day for some TLC.
