I would be very grateful if some orchid folk could pass on their
knowledge concerning the treatment of silver with reference to
avoidance of tarnish on sterling silver.
I am currently using a depletion gilding procedure to obtain a coat
of fine silver that then gets burnished with a brass soapy brush.
This works to some extent but I am interested in other options . I
have heard about tarnish resistant silver, has any one got anything
to report on this ? what is it’s make up?, is it ok for enamels,
does it cast OK?
Is there some technique to preserving silver in a glass case I have
not discovered? when silver becomes tarnished what is the best
methods of restoring it to it’s former glory? any home recipes for tarnish removers?
