so more about the small bit..
Here all the small copper things, now polished up. 50% loss of shoe but surprisingly no attrition on the tiny tutu's..I don't usually use Renaissance Wax on the small bits but a spray of car Dash board polish. Its silicone based. Liquid silicone is incredibly tenacious, to get rid of it i'd have to apply red heat, it seems to bond to the surface. Don't ever use it near anything you might want to paint latter/ever it will ruin the paint for years.
