One of the most common questions we receive is "How do I clean my copper?" and "Will it tarnish?"
Well the answer really is - it depends. Yes, copper will tarnish over time as it reacts with the air and it will develop a patina. That patina will be different depending on whether the item is inside or outside, and if you prefer you can avoid it entirely with a wax finish or lacquer.
