[Ansteorra] a question for metalsmiths

My husband has a pouch with a brass and copper piece on it that he got years ago. It was made by Duchess Athena. He keeps it shiny with something called Never Dull that he thinks that he got at Lowes or Home Depot. If your piece has dark green spots, it may have become pitted, in which case I'm not sure how well it will clean up.


I found this website which has something that looks promising. I haven't used it, but maybe someone out there has.




Good Luck,

> I have a leather pouch with a decorated metal plate on the flap. I believe it is silver and bronze. It is several years old. The metal developed dark green spots, when I wiped them off it left light spots on the metal. Apparently whatever protective coating that had been on it has worn off.
