So happy to have my brother, Chris, visit today and bring me this present…a baggie of stamped copper pieces from his shop.  They were all as bright and shiny as new copper pennies until I gave them a bath in liver of sulphur that turned them the color of steel gray—almost black.  They’ll have to be very patient and wait their turn for a steel wool buffing to bring out their inner beauty, filing down their rough edges, and polishing to a lovely shine, and finally, two coats of wax to protect their luster.Can’t wait to see what’s inside!

And here are some links, after some filing of rough edges and buffing with 0000 steel wool.
