The Bronze Sculpture Manufacturer shares with you how to clean a bronze sculpture, hope it will help you

Bronze is an alloy usually made of copper and tin. It is a strong and durable metal that has many uses. Over time, as bronze is exposed to the elements, it loses its luster and sheen, creating a green patina that covers the surface of the bronze. While sometimes bronze can add depth and dimension to a bronze sculpture, many people do not find this desirable.

Cleaning dust from bronze sculptures is a must and, as mentioned above, should be done with great care. For general cleaning, soap and water are incomparable! Simply clean the bronze sculpture with a soft cloth in warm water and soap, gently wiping away any dust and dirt from the object. Be sure to rinse the soap thoroughly before carefully wiping and storing the bronze sculpture.

Wipe the object with a jewelry cleaning cloth after wearing it, as this will minimize rusting and protect the bronze jewelry from dust and dirt.

If you wish to maintain the patina on your Bronze Sculpture, you can do so. The bronze color actually helps prevent further corrosion of your bronze sculpture. A light green layer can make your bronze sculpture look beautiful and add a vintage appeal.

However, if your sculpture has lost its luster, then you will need to clean it more carefully. Use commercial cleaners sparingly and scrub as gently as possible so that you can remove as little metal as possible.

If you find that the rust is stubborn, you can use a polishing wheel on a rotary tool, or use a polishing pad with a vibrating tool. However, if you choose to do this, be careful, removing too much metal under the varnish can change the overall shape of the sculpture. Of course, you may not have the tools to do this, which means you will need a professional to do the job for you.
