    Default I don't want to paint this . . .

    I have this large Columbian (about 11" tall) that's been loved and abused for years.
    First by the Torrance Division of California Edison (base was welded to a metal bench).
    Then, by a guy who "rescued it" (painted it and thought he could use it as an anvil).
    Then by me.

    I stripped 4 layers of paint off and took a picture.

    Now I don't want to re-paint it.
    Will paste wax be enough to protect it?
    Other options? Gibbs?
    Or do I just bite the bullet and paint it.

    Just my two cents, a really glossy bright color. Makes it easy to clean and may show off the textures.

    Mine had a couple of layers of grubby paint on it; I cleaned it with cleaning wax and a lot of the paint came off. The paintless parts are doing just fine with just wax on them.
