Black Slate Clocks are becoming more and more valuable every year, with increasing importance being attached to the condition of the slate case. There is no magic chemical formula for restoring a black mirror finish to dulled and greying slate (actually limestone). The correct method involves completely dismantling the case and repolishing each individual section with sophisticated polishing machinery. Dismantling can do more harm than good because the cases were often wired and cemented together very firmly, and re-polishing requires special skills.
To overcome this problem we introduced 'Meadows & Passmore's Slate Blacking ', a jet-black emulsified stain that enriches and blackens the surface in preparation for polishing with a good beeswax polish. It is not like black paint and cannot completely mask grey areas of oxidised limestone, but does considerably enhance the appearance of the case without making it look too 'done up'.
Slate Blacking is simple to apply. Full instructions are supplied and because of its concentration, a little goes a long way.
