Does tin tarnish?

Tin is slow to tarnish. Which is why it is a great material for reflective ornaments like our Victorian Tinsel. It will be years before your piece has noticeably lost its luster. Tarnishing can be slowed down be storing your item in an airtight bag. If you want to polish use a non abrasive metal cleaner. Read the directions carefully. A lot of elbow grease may be required to use the cleaner. Our favorite is Nevr-Dull™. We do not advise the rough side of any punched item be polished.

We would like to let our customers know that Pietersma Tinworks is currently relocating and is under new ownership. Due to the current pandemic (and its associated material delivery delays); along with the relocation of the equipment, it will be difficult to complete custom orders for the 2020 season. With that being said, please be aware that not all orders can be processed during this transition. We thank you for your understanding and look forward to providing you with our high-quality Canadian made tinware in the coming seasons. Please email if you have any questions. Thank you and all the best, Pietersma Tinworks and family
