The Grand Light Team worked tirelessly to restore and preserve the original nickel and brass finishes. The cleaning process to preserve the existing finish included three ultra delicate steps:
1) Precision dry/wet soda blasting via a helical H20 gun, rotating the media for optimal control and non-destructive pressure on the metal surface
2) A combination of industrial ultrasonic cleaning tanks with patented high performance generators followed with a delicate hand cleaning process
3) Multiple hand applications of UV resistant clear museum grade metal wax
Additionally, Grand Light artisans sorted, counted, categorized, and cleaned over 1,000 crystal components. Of these components, 14% of the total amount were missing or damaged beyond repair and required custom fabricated Austrian replacement crystal.
