Brassed Off



If you keep polishing your handles for a hundred years or so, it will begin to look like this, almost abstract, version at the English National Opera

Nice shot. But isn't that verdigris?

@Eva - my thoughts too. But I also realize that this may be due to a careful polishing of just the raised surfaces, leaving the recesses to develop a patina. But the (lack of) definition has me leaning to a true "hand rubbed" shine over the years.

It's still a great picture.

It's pretty much as imajoebob says, as far as I can make out, a rub up and down with a cloth and polish is what it gets.
