BRONZE MONUMENT CLEANING
Exterior bronze statues and monuments require regular maintenance in common with other types of outdoor sculpture such as War Memorials. Cleaning and the application of fresh wax layers help to slow down degradation and if undertaken regularly, can prevent other costly treatments becoming necessary. This is not only relevant to historic bronze statues but contemporary bronzes too.
Conservation treatments stabilise an object and can reduce disfiguration without the need to restore. Restoration may be necessary when the original patina has become seriously disfigured usually by corrosion.
In such cases it may be necessary to use techniques such as TORC (a wet/air abrasion system), followed by some repatination before a protective coating is applied. In the case of bronze monuments, we make bespoke patination formulas to try to match to the surviving patina as closely as possible.
