|cuff on left has not been torched. Cuff on right is handi-fluxed|
I have also had good results using nothing but a good scrub on the copper with dawn blue dish soap and a green scrubby, and then a brass brushing....and no flux at all....this method though is not as consistent as the flux method.
so here's what I am working on...they were blued with a combination of ammonia fumes and solvent inks....and a bit of gel pen and sharpie marker thrown it. then i laquered them. they still need to have their edges polished to bring up the copper and then waxed......and then they'll be done. yay!
