WHY WE LOVE WORKING WITH BRASS AND YOU WILL ALSO!
- Brass is highly durable
- Brass is polished easily
- Brass is corrosion resistant
- Brass is green: a highly machinable with less scrap, less rework and less
energy than other materials.
- Brass is lead and nickel free
- Brass has a soft muted honey colouring, which makes it the most complimentary of all metal finishes.
Brass will naturally darken (called a patina) as it ages.
You may like the antique it creates however if you want to bring the piece back to a shiny brass simply:
Boil 1 cup of water, set aside until warm then add a tblsp vinegar and
drop of washing up detergent. Combine all ingredients in a jar &
gently shake for 30 seconds. Dry on a paper towel.
It’s that easy!
