Caring For Your Copper Products
 
The Copper Gauge Of Our Products Are Thicker Then Most Other Copper Retailers. Therefore, Our Copper Is More Durable, Because Of Their Structural Strength.  To Keep Copper Looking Beautiful, We Recommend Following A Regular Care Routine.

Before Using Your Copper Product, Be Sure To Cover The Copper With A Wax Recommended For A Living Copper Patina.  Renaissance Wax Works Extremely Well In Protecting The Copper Finish. Never Use A Copper Polish As It Will Ruin Your Copper Patina Finish.

Even Copper Products That Have A Lacquer Coating
Require Waxing Once A Month. The Wax Provides A Barrier Between The Copper And Outside Elements. Copper Will Naturally Turn Darker As It Ages. A Wax Coating Helps Deter This Natural Process.

If You Do Not Use A Wax Monthly, The Patina Will Darken Over Time, Eventually Turning Green. Some Customer's Wish To Allow Their Copper To Age In This Manner. To Help Maintain Your Current Patina Finish, Waxing Is Necessary.

How To Age Your Patina Finish.  If You Wish The Patina To Eventually Turn Green, Then Do Not Add A Lacquer Coating Or The Monthly Wax Coating.  Without Copper Maintenance For The Patina Finish, The Copper Will Start To Accumulate Brown Spots In Random Areas. On Lighter Patina Finishes, Such As New Penny, Old Penny And Golden Bronze, The Brown Spots Will Be Quite Noticeable.  On Dark Patina Finishes, The Dark Areas Will Blend Nicely With The Patina Finish.  Copper When Introduced To Air And Water, Naturally Forms Dark Areas On The Copper Surface, Which If left To Age, Will Eventually Turn Green Over Time.

After Each Use, Use A Soft Cloth To Wipe Out Your Copper Product.  This Is An Easy Way To Keep Your Copper Looking Beautiful And To Stop The Brown Spots From Forming.

Do
NOT Use Abrasives Or Chemicals On Your Copper Products.  This Will Damage The Living Patina Finish.  Rinse Out Acid Foods In Copper Kitchen Sink Bowls, Toothpaste Out Of Copper Bathroom Sinks And Residue Shampoos, Conditioners And Soap Out Of Copper Shower Pans And Copper Bath Tubs.

If You Live In An Area With Hard Water
, Water When Let To Puddle, Will Create Water Stains On The Copper. Those Water Stains Will Be Difficult To Remove When Left To Dry. This Is Another Reason Waxing Your Copper Products On A Regular Basis Is Important.  Wax Helps Create A Barrier Between The Copper And Outside Elements.
 
To Clean Your Copper Products, Use Gentle Soft Soap And Warm Water. Rinse Thoroughly And Wipe Dry With Your Soft Cloth. Abrasive Cleaners Will Damage The Copper, So Never Use Any Chemicals On Your Copper Products.

If A Deep Cleaning Is Needed, Use A Non-Abrasive, Non-Corrosive Cleaner Such As Simple Green, That Has Been Diluted With Water.  Rinse And Wipe Dry.

Because Copper Darkens Over Time, Lighter Patina Finishes Such As Old Penny, New Penny, Golden Bronze And Mate Copper Require More Loving Care.  Since Copper Ages Naturally Over Time With Use, No Warranty Applies For Copper Patina Finishes.  When Purchasing Copper Patinas In Coffee, Brown Or Dark Patinas, The Aging Process Is The Same. However, The Darker Patinas Do Not Show the Darkening Process As Easily As The Lighter Patina Finishes.

Copper Patinas Are Created By Combining Multiple Patinas Together, To Reach The Final Patina Finish.  Depending Upon The Light The Copper Is Captured In, The Patina Will Change In Appearance. For This Reason, No Two Patina Finishes Are Ever The Same.
