Sealing and Finishing the Copper Etched Cuff

I used the Renaissance wax as a sealer - applied let set and then buffed.
Is great for woodworking as this is why I had in the first place (made wood pens) It is a synthetic wax derived from petroleum and popular.

But I also had a sealer that I made when I was making other metal jewellery that I made myself - very easy and works just as well as a sealer.

You get some white beeswax pellets and mix with Acetone.
Just put your pellets into a container and slowly pour some acetone over the wax - and it will melt it - just mix and voilà you have a paste wax to put on your metal for finishing.  I f it dries out you just add a bit more acetone to reconstitute it .
