Do they turn copper colored when the torch flame is on them or whenyou fish them out of the pickle? If you can file a bit where itwouldn't show, what color is the metal?
Marilyn, It is when I put the torch to the metal, by the way, I wantit to turn copper, but I ran out of the metal and can't rememberwhat it was, nickle etc.... and when I file it, it is copper stillany HELP!~!!!!!! Thanks, Bari
Marilyn, It turns copper when the metal is heated and when I file itthe metal is copper, any help would be great!!!! Thanks, Bari
It's been a while and I forge what you were heating. Possibly theitem is copper. Silver can become copper plated while pickling. Ifyou thought the item was silver perhaps it was silver plate or evenelectroplated copper or brass.
