A copper oxidizing solution needed to create reddish purple results
I saw a table at Ethan Allen, that had a beautiful oxidized copper top, with lots of reddish, and some lavender hues. It was shiny and looked as like gasoline does when on top of water. I want to do this myself. Any suggestions?Kim Longo

I would like to know the answer to the same question. I actually bought the copper top table from Ethan Allen and have used twinkle polish cream on it thus removing part of the oxidation. How do I restore it.
Thank you.Lucinda Robson

Hi, folks. Those reddish/purplish hues may be from heat coloring rather than chemicals. Please see letter 2662 and see what you think.

I have copper top table I purchased from Ethan Allen. With use, some rings from wet glasses have appeared. I would guess that the table top is lacquered. How do I clean it so that the glass rings disappear?Tracey Eberhardt
