How do you polish a Breyer Model horse?
November 23, 2009 4:43PM
You should not attempt to polish a Breyer model horse. The paint
used is fairly durable, but cannot withstand most solvents. A
Glossy model horse is glossed at the factory. Matte finish horses
have no top gloss coat. A dirty model should be gently washed in
warm soapy water, using a mild dish detergent. Black marks may not
be able to be removed without damaging the underlying paint.
Adding any kind of additional gloss to a model can actually detract from the value, so consult a model horse collector or one who restores models before actually attempting to alter a model in the clean-up process.
