Apotake's original brass incense stand with a beautiful appearance.The product design is by sculptor Emiko Makino. It is a handmade product one by one.
Brass oxidizes when exposed to air. It may be discolored by fingerprints, moisture such as sweat, or oil.Since each item is handmade, the surface is lightly finished to take advantage of the texture of the brass base. Therefore, please understand that there are individual differences. Please note that the back side is not intentionally polished.The most distinctive feature of brass is that its color and texture change as it is used. The fact that you can enjoy aging like the aging of leather products is one of the charms of brass, but I think that it is one of the pleasures to have you use it habitually while maintaining its beauty by properly caring for it.Although brass is not easily corroded, it oxidizes when exposed to air and gradually develops a blackish tint. If the darkening of the brass becomes too dark or rusty, you can polish the brass in various ways to restore its original brilliance and color. There is a method of polishing with a commercially available metal polishing cloth or abrasive, but since the hairline processing will disappear, we recommend cleaning with "baking soda".A common method of polishing brass with baking soda is to mix baking soda and water in a 2: 1 ratio to create a paste-like state, which is then gently rubbed with a cloth or finger. If you want to clean dark or uneven areas, you can use a cotton swab or toothbrush. Please try to polish it gently so as not to damage it by either method. At this time, be careful not to hold the pipe part into which the incense is inserted strongly or apply a load. It may cause damage.If you do not wash the baking soda properly with water after polishing and wipe off the water, it may cause discoloration or rust. (Please note that if you leave it with water remaining, green rust called "patina" will appear.)Also, if this method does not remove dirt or darkening, it is commercially available. Polish using the sand sheet of. The sand sheet linked below is actually used for the final finish, so you can also make your own hairline, and you can arrange and enjoy the finish to your liking.
