Waxes have been used for centuries to protect outdoor sculpture. Through the development of microcrystalline waxes and adjustments to formulations there has been a notable improvement in their serviceability. In a few instances, such as very smooth surfaces or rough textures, the application method has a significant effect on their longevity. This paper describes the development and implementation of equipment, materials, and techniques which allows the successful spray application of wax to outdoor sculpture.
