Preventing hot tin from adhering to outside of copper pot during retinning



September 1, 2010

I have successfully retinned some of my copper cooking pots, on the inside. But sometimes tin gets over the edge and adheres to the (unfluxed) outside. Is there a product which can be applied to the outside to prevent tin from adhering? (I can't figure out why the tin adheres to un-bright, unfluxed copper. Flux fumes?) Thanks for helping me on this one.
