Hi,

What is the best way to clean and preserve carved pieces? The storyboards and PNG carving I've purchased recently are dusty, very dry and have some hairline cracks in them. They're kept indoors and out of the sun.

This has worked the best for me:

You can get it Home Depot, Lowe's, etc.

It works pretty good on Coco joes too.

Buzzy, the Howard Feed-N-Wax worked great! Thank you for the help.

Side note, off topic: I used the above product on my kitchen cabinets and it was amazing. 10 year old cabinets, prior home owners had 2 kids and 2 dogs, let's just say I thought I would need new kitchen cabinets. The scratches were nasty. The Howard wax worked great, kitchen done in 1 hour or less and look great. Easy and inexpensive fix.

Can this product be used on vintage Witco pieces? Has anyone used this on pieces in their own collections. Thanks.

Yes, all the time.
THIS is the perfect ('SECRET STUFF') for WITCO.
using new paint brushes, first dust ,all the little nooks and crannies with one brush,then warm,(just warm) the Howard's in the microwave.it melts the bees wax making it more liquid to apply with another new paint brush.liberally,let it sit and soak in, then wipe all the excess with a good clean quality rag.

BADA BING,just like new!

Just my opinion,I could be wrong.but I'm not.

I used that stuff on several vintage carvings and it works great. You can use a light buffer on it after it dries and BAM! it get all shiny.
