Jun 29, 2008
If you are an owner of indoor bronze pieces, there is a need to take a soft cloth for dust removal. No matter if there is built-up residue and grime from indoor storage or the outdoor showcasing, there are proper methods to cleaning your bronze sculptures. Basic dirt and grime are easily removed with a soft cotton clothe, room temperature water and a very mild chemical-free soap.

When you are sure of the soap not damaging the naturally surface worn patina, you may go ahead and continue a completely cleaning with the cotton pads or clothe and soapy distilled water.

There are many reasons for bronze to be such a highly chosen type of sculpture. Bronze is not only beautiful, but also durable in many ranges of environmental changes. But even with so much versatility, there still needs to be the proper care taken of your exquisite investment. Many of those that collect bronze sculptures may think that there is no necessary care for their artwork if the piece is established outdoors, but this is not true. It is no matter of your bronze artwork piece being indoors or outside, there is a minimal amount of needed care-taking.

If you are an owner of indoor bronze pieces, there is a need to take a soft cloth for dust removal. Although, dust may do no initial harm in light amounts, when it builds up in a thicker residue, there may be eventual damage done to the exterior. No matter if there is built-up residue and grime from indoor storage or the outdoor showcasing, there are proper methods to cleaning your bronze sculptures. Basic dirt and grime are easily removed with a soft cotton clothe, room temperature water and a very mild chemical-free soap.

If you are cleaning for the first time, it is best to make sure and check for any kind of ill-fated reaction to the soap that you are going to clean with. This can be done with a small cotton pad or swab with a cotton end, and the soapy mixture. It is best to do the checking in an area that is not obvious just in case there is any damage caused to the patina surface due to a reaction to the soap. Due to any chemical additives that may be put into your water, it is best to use distilled water instead of tap water. Make sure to let the test area fully dry, so to not have any chemical reaction.

When you are sure of the soap not damaging the naturally surface worn patina, you may go ahead and continue a completely cleaning with the cotton pads or clothe and soapy distilled water. It is best to use cotton pads that can be tossed, or make sure that the cleaning clothe will rinse completely of the dirt being washed. This is important so to be able to not have any dirt particles within the cloth or pads being put back in to any small crevasses of your Bronze sculpture. It is important to completely dry after rinsing, and then apply a good bronze wax for protection.
