If you use some clear, spray-on conformal coating (the stuff sprayed on circuit boards to prevent environmental corrosion and tarnishing), that copper will stay shiny for months.

Conformal coating is a sort of polyurethane that's easily removed by plain old isopropyl alcohol and absolutely non-damaging to copper. You can probably find some at an electronic hobby store.

I don't think he meant anything by his remark. Cowboy movies with scenes in saloons often featured metal spittoons having about the same shape as your vase. It's a cultural reference. Roll with it ;-)

thought I should bring up, while copper looks great shiny, it value diminishes when you shine it. antique copper art should be shined only if you don't intend to sell. same with brass.

yes it' true.

That goes with any antique metal object.

Indeed. I personally like the tarnished metal look. But parts that conduct electricity and perform specific tasks must be clean so this is very useful information.

Thank you.

Only with copper

Yes it's related to cultural
