Restoring brass or bronze bell
I have a large "church style bell which I think is either brass or maybe even bronze, standing about a foot tall and about ten inches wide. At some time in its history I think it must have had an acid applied to it as it appears to be somewhat blackened over maybe a third of its surface. My question is, how do I go about restoring it to its original raw colour and then treating it to preventing any further corrosion? I would like to make it into some sort of garden feature.
