You could be mistaken for thinking its some really random spaghetti shapes. But I’m actually pickling/polishing some copper pendants using good old ketchup.

No really.

I’ve been told they polish up really well and it’s great for getting rid of the greenish gunk you get when you wear copper for a while. It’s the acid in the vinegar, y’see.

It’s like delicious magic.

Once they’ve pickled for a while I’ll clean them up with a toothbrush and some warm water.
