French grey protective coating
Now that you've got your action parts nicely French greyed, how do you protect it? A clear lacquer or finish of some sort? How is sit applied? Airbrush?
After years of hard work, I perfected my technique for treating Frech gray. I don't do anything. The finish seems at least as rust resistant a rust blue and I care for it in the same way.
For added protection I add 3 or 4 very light applications of Renaissance Wax. If there is engraving involved, I add lamp black to the first application to bring out the engraving.
Thanks very much Glenn & Sam, My work piece is a new Fraser action which has been beautifully engraved by Lee Griffiths. His work is stunning and I want to properly finish it. Roger
You might ask Lee what he recommends as well.
