Saving Patina
« on: November 22, 2019, 09:34:51 PM »
This is a section of wood from a thresher that I had bought years ago.

It reads...

Schaeffer & Merkel
Manufacturers


The Schaeffer is Mandy's ancestors.




Anyway I'd like to save this and clean it up the best I can to preserve it.

What would be the best method to do so?

Soap & water and go from there. Might be good enough, of course you already know the colors are what they are.


BTW it looks like wood, patina is a condition found on metal surfaces. If it's metal never mind.

I`d frame it up under glass as is.
Is the need enough? or does the want suffice?
