Just trying to stop any spreading or getting worse, can I coat them in something to prevent this. Think it's called verdigris.
Also have 1 silver that appears to have some too

I use Renaissance Wax


Cleggy's stuff is probably exactly the same and much cheaper! Will know what to grab once this tin is done.

Verdigris is a pain in the arse, Bronze disease even worse.

ALKALINE ROCHELLE SALT SOLUTION (careful this shite will burn you)
- 5g Sodium Hydroxide (lye/caustic soda)
- 15g Potassium Sodium Tartrate (rochelle salt, can get it on ebay in small amounts)
- 100ml distilled water

Soak for 10-30 mins, should get rid of the verdigris, then neutralise in distilled water soak.

Coat with the micro wax then store!
