“Tarnished” Creative Clean Up by Jim Dingilian
I’ve noticed that most brides do not register for silver anymore. Modern lifestyles trend more towards simplicity of both maintenance and presentation which makes complete sense. My husband’s grandmother, Henriette, used to say, “Remember Betsy, everything you buy is just another stick to beat yourself with…you’ve got to clean it, insure it, store it, haul it…” No truer words were ever spoken.
My silver closet is lined with Pacific Cloth (it only works if it’s brown by the way). Even so, periodically, the tarnish becomes too embarrassing and demands an all-day polishing project.
Artist Jim Dingilian has a better idea. His works gleam. (The bottles shown below are also cool… made from smoke)

I would love to know that answer as well! I am tempted to take a paint brush and polishing fluid to my trays!!
Really interesting. I wonder if after filling the bottles with smoke, does he then reach inside with a tool to “carve” the scenes? Best use for old silver that I’ve seen in a while.
