In Response To: Re: tarnishing brass to age it (clay)

Now that we know how to age it - and I have no problem with that - how do you shine it without working myself to death polishing it - the reason I ask is I have a large (very, very large, heavy) brass vase, I think they call them an "urn" - I prefer the shine look over the drab old tarnished look - it looks like it came outta Tutankamed's tomb! ! It is beautifully designed but dirty looking ugly! I know it has not been cleaned for over 70 years it was my grandmothers, then my mother and I almost threw it in the trash when it came "my turn". Wish I could lend (give that look) to anyone who would appreciate it!
