What is Brass?

     Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc. A diverse range of brass can be created simply by varying the proportion of these two ingredients. Brass has a yellow color that is somewhat similar to gold. It is also fairly resistant to tarnishing.  Brass has several characteristic properties that make it the ideal choice for art and craft:

  • It is a long lasting metal
  • It requires little maintenance
  • Its color, which is similar to gold, gives it a very attractive appearance
  • It can be of varying degrees of hardness or softness. This makes it malleable, and easy to engrave.
  • It does not tarnish very easily. Hence, brass handicrafts are very popular in coastal areas.
Brass craft objects can have two types of finishes: highly polished and antique polished. Highly polished brass handicrafts are bright and
shiny. Antique polished brass craft items have an older appearance and are not shiny.  

At World Class Brass, we prefer bright and shiny polished brass. Check out all the delightful handicrafts we offer at worldclassbrass.com
