Subject: Wax paste composition for outdoor bronze

Wax paste composition for outdoor bronze

From: Zee-Young Chin <zychin14<-at->

I am a conservator at Samsung Museum of Art in Seoul. We have
outdoor bronze sculptures that are cleaned and coated every two
years or so. One of our contacts working in the US told us several
years ago to make our own wax using a ball mill. The ingredients
were: Carnauba, beeswax, dammar in turpentine and lavender oil.

Can someone tell me what role does the lavender oil play in this
