    How should I perverse this metal plate piece?

    I found this a while ago and need some ideas on perversing it. I think it is made out of a lead mixed with tin because of how it is crumbling away ( I have heard it does that), the blue/white corrosion, and the small amount of rust on the edge. Like I said, it is crumbling away and I think it is a really cool and pretty piece. Also, if you know what the scene is depicting, I would love to know.Click image for larger version.

    It is a pretty piece. Too bad you don't have it all. Must be famous building. perhaps someone will recognize it. Now that it is out of the ground maybe it will stop corroding.

    Not sure if Elmer's glue or hot wax would seal it. Then there is the option Renaissance micro-crystalline wax to seal it up.
    It's a cool scene on the piece for sure.

    I treat the outside world as one raw very warm wet chicken that has sitting out too long. wash and sterilize everything me touches. pepperj

    Thanks for the ideas! I have heard of the elmers glue trick and had been thinking about using it. I heard it was more for Puter but I do not know. The wax is also a good idea

    when I found it I was hoping that to but I have had this for a while and when I touch the sides it just starts crumbling away. I think that the place is next to a lake if that helps with finding out what the building is.

    I think that I am going to go with the Elmer’s glue and water trick.

    I would do an online search using Something along the lines of "Images, famous old hotel, (name of town or county and state near where it was found)". If that doesn't work try adding the words, or "water" you might even add "grand" since all the big ones liked that description.

    An online search looks for all the words used so I try not to use "the", "in", "around" etc since the search will bring up everything, and I mean every thing, it can find online with those extra/useless words in it.
    Changing the same words around in a different sequecne can alter the results as well.

    BTW- not to pick at you but I think you meant to ask how to preserve this artifact. (When I saw "perverse" I almost expected to see a graphic brothel token. LOL)

    I used the Elmers glue trick and it has definitely worked! Also, what I had thought was a building may really be a steam boat. It also looks like it is in a large body of water and that there is a dock on the bottom. Hopefully this will help me find out what this is depicting.
