Can rennaisance wax be applied with a tumbler? how does it hold up
to wear on the inside of rings and bracelets?
Renaissance wax is very much like high-quality paste car wax. A
tumbler wouldn’t do anything for applying it–it has to be rubbed on
with a cloth or paper towel.
It doesn’t seem to wear well on jewelry in my limited experience. I
have very acidic perspiration, and I absolutely can not wear
uncoated copper, bronze or brass in any form. Copper-based metals
turn black on me within a few minutes. I tried putting several coats
of RenWax on a copper bracelet to see if I could wear it that way. It
took about one day before the bracelet started to turn black. Then I
couldn’t get all of the wax off of the bracelet so I could clean it.
I ended up tossing it in the tumbler with medium abrasive and sanded
it down to bare metal before re-polishing it.
