Concrete behaves much like wood and leather in that it develops patina and character over time through usage. This is part of what makes concrete so beautiful. It is difficult to destroy but like all natural stone concrete is porous and it will react to your touch. Our concrete sculptures are designed to be handled; waxing is an opportunity for owners to bond with their piece. Our Lucky Cat Wax is a mixture of beeswax, carnauba wax and mineral oil.
1. Pop out the mesh screen with a pin. While the screen is out, use a rag or pipe cleaner with just a little isopropyl alcohol to wipe off any black marks. Rinse with water.
2. Dry concrete with towel and let air dry for 2-3 hours.
3. Coat pipe in a thin layer of Lucky Cat Wax and let sit for 15 minutes. With a dry cloth buff off wax. Return screen into pipe. Replacement screens are available at most local head shops.
