Photo Stand & Application Brush I Made

I usually put on a good coat with a Q-tip and once it drys you can usually see a light colored haze about it . I then take a soft bristled brush and buff it good until i can see a nice contrast of the highs and lows on the coin. the highs have a nice sheen to them . nice pictures Roger.

Thanks for the tips Del.

I'll give it another coat (more thicker this time) and let it dry & then buff. I guess the process is like waxing a car.

I started with this method last year the results are very good. Like your photo stand too.

Ave Rebel et al,

The application of renwax is Your Friend when it comes to bringing out details on worn coins/artifacts, especially those with green patina. The wax not only protects your objects from the atmosphere, but also helps darken the patina to an eye-pleasing color.

I apply the wax with my thumb and fore-finger, just to fully work the wax into all the surfaces. This ain't rocket science, no Q-tips, please. Just like waxing a car, the more coats the better. The trick, as mentioned above is to let each thin coat of wax to fully dry, then buff. I use a special Dremel buffing tool. You can simply place your coin onto a soft cotton towel, gently press down and buff it about in a swirling manner. The more coats the more you'll begin to see the 3D effect of the multiple coats.

Hope this helps,

Going to have to give this method a try. I have an old large cent that I worked on for awhile but still can't get a date.
