Anyone ever try Renaissance Metal De-Corroder? It's supposedly made by the same company that makes Renwax it's marketed as a metal safe corrosion remover, I assume it would also eat patina
, but I have a couple of coins that I have given up on. Both have soaked for months in distilled water and Gringotts
to little or no effect, scalpels and picks bounce off of the encrustation and even an over night soak in MSR failed to remove all of it (though it did do wonders). Finally, in desperation, I let them soak over night in lemon juice, the one shows no difference at all, it is still
covered in some sort of powdery looking blue corrosion and the other has now gone from a decent looking encrusted coin to a completely stripped, badly pitted
illegible shiny encrusted coin; the lemon juice, I'm afraid may have completely trashed it, yet the dark green scalylookong corrosion that I can't seem to remove remains. At this point I want to kill this stuff even if it takes a damned jack hammer, just on principle, then maybe try to restore what's left to something resembling presentable.
So I have two questions, the first is will Renaissance Metal De-Corroder work
? The second is will Jax help
hide the stripped pitted
illegible mess the lemon juice left and maybe at least partially restore some of the detail?
One more question, any idea what this green crap is that seems to be immune to everything?
