Wood carvings add character to your landscape design. They require very little maintenance to last for years. They are typically carved from seasoned dry wood to minimize cracking after they are carved. That makes caring from them easy because the majority of the drying process is already done. Helping your pieces maintain their moisture and protective finishes will make them last longer and retain their natural beauty.
Things You'll Need
- Nonwax furniture polish
- Hard-bristle paint brush
- Polyurethane spray
Remove surface dust and dirt by brushing the carving with a hard-bristle paint brush. Pay close attention to the heavily sculpted areas.
Spray the tips of your brush with a nonwax furniture polish and brush the polish onto your wood carving. Apply additional polish to the brush as need.
Once a year move your carving to a flat, covered surface, clean it with your dry brush and apply two coats of polyurethane spray. Allow time for the first coat to dry completely before applying the second.
