Restoring a Victorian slate and faux marble fireplace


(marina hughes) #1

Hi. Wondering if you can help me?
I’m restoring a Victorian slate and faux marble fireplace . The black on the slate has worn away in most areas and was wondering what polish you would recommend to cover this . ?
Any advice would be appreciated
Regards
Marina

Hi Marina
My experience with slate fireplaces is most were painted black & faux marbled in certain places some times all over. I once stripped one cleaned it off & then wet sanded with up to 800 grit wet& dry. Left it to dry & sealed & polished it with baby oil with great results. Hope this helps .
