Jan, well done on your brass fenders!  I can see from the picture that you have had success with bringing the brass back.  Thanks for telling me about your experience as I'm likely to have a similar experience in the future.

Your fireplace accessories look lovely!  It is amazing what you can make with brass.  Do you have a supplier of brass stampings or did your re-purpose something from a found object?

Today, I found a small used crock pot for pickle solution ($2), so I was happy to find one inexpensively.

Thanks for the compliments!  Most of the fancy brass strip I bought in the UK from Miniature shops or traders.  The smallest fender was made using the brass channel around an old hand mirror from the tip shop!  I very carefully straightened it out and I am pleased with the outcome!  The square brass rod for the corners is from the local hobby shop and the finials and knobs I turned from brass rod.  The bases are all made from scrap brass from a friend's 'stash'!  Total cost in money for the 4 fenders and 2 screens was about $9.  Cost in time and frustration:  months!!!!  Jan
