We only use natural products to finish the metal. All forged pieces are treated with Beeswax and 'Renaissance Wax' to provide a protective and attractive finish. We do recommend that you occasionally treat the metal with Beeswax or a similar natural polish, this will build a beautiful patina and keep the piece looking great. Simply apply some wax and buff to a high shine.
As no lacquers or paints are used to treat the metal then over time, and if there is significant moisture in the air, rust spots may begin to appear. If this does happen gently remove the spots with wire wool and apply a coat of natural wax as detailed above. Given a little care and attention your piece will last for generations!
