TIP: Removing tarnish from your pins.

I'll probably update this post with photo examples, during the lead up to JordanCon, when I'll need to do this again.  But back in April, we had a brief discussion in the [url=https://www.facebook.com/groups/1037086989698838/permalink/1055005701240300/]Facebook group[/url] about how best to shine up your Dedicated pin, or other small silver accessories.

Whether you are using silver polish or toothpaste, the key is to use only a very small amount (use the tip of the sword as a tiny scoop), to ensure you don't over do it and accidentally mess with the antiquing. 

Once you have the desired amount, apply it directly to the cloth you will be using.  (A good microfiber cloth is best, but any rag will do.)  This will help keep the paste/polish out of crevasses, and only polish the raised surfaces.
