    Electrolysis and wax dipping

    Finally cleaning my metal artifacts. Is it necessary to get every speck of rust of the artifacts before doing the hot wax dip. I知 new to this but I知 sure someone will have the correct answer. Thanks in advance.

    If I may suggest go to Utube and watch some of Aquachiggers videos on Electrolysis and the waxing of iron relics. He has some pretty good videos concerning this and they have a lot of information as to the do's and the don't's. Best of luck to you and be careful.

    I saw some of his videos. Now that you mention it I think he waxed some of his stuff that still showed some rust. Thanks

    There are some other videos out on a product called Gemplers. You may have heard of this. This product treats iron from the inside out preventing and stopping rust from re occurring. This is a great product if you don't mind it turning the iron black. When applied and after drying, it gives the iron a nice looking sheen. Check it out if you haven't already. This is just another option to treating the iron. I treated my 12 pound Confetrit' shell and all my iron shell frag's and other iron relics with the Gemplers and I was pleased at the finished product. Good luck to you. I meant to add that I am no way affiliated with the Gemplers company. I just simply tried it and I was satisfied with their product and I could recommend it to anyone looking at preserving their iron relics.

    Thanks I did see that on YouTube looks interesting. I waxed my double axe head. It was pretty big so I had to flip it over to get it all covered. Might get hold of Gemplers for future finds
