Default Re: Restoring Brass Etched Labels

Hi Dave

I was pleased with how the crown came out - I think that I foolishly may have pressed too hard on the centre and flexed the label downwards. I was also surprised how scratchy the 2000 grit paper was.

I haven't finished with it - I stopped before going all the way. I don't think I can avoid trying to re-ink it. It's all experience though.

I used a polishing compound and soft roller with my dremel for the first time and was very pleased with the result, though that was on other brass parts, yet another hit for the dremel!

Since no-one appears to have personal experience I'll send off an art work to some suppliers to gte some prices.
