I think it needs some sweaty palms to bring out the patina even more...

there's a band called sweaty palms. Also 1000's of disgusting pics on google, kinda liking the look of the light now  :rofl:

With lights like Tip and Tini I don't get much chance to put it on my keychain anymore, it's also a lot heavier, but's its cool to have at least 1 copper light in my collection.

Yup, sweat and pocket time will do it. I remember when I got mine it was summer and it got handled a lot as well as sat in my pocket which was hot and moist and it patina in less than a week.

I'm the milk man!

Thx DP, seems like it keeps changing back and fourth, I cant seem to get that nice rainbow effect like Jaya, I researched a bunch of chemically forced methods, but they all seem to eat the surface too much.

I tried the egg trick, but it seemed to strip some patina off. Next I put it in ziplock with birthday cake, mostly frosting and got some cool camo effects on the body. Now I am applying some mustard lines with a toothpick and seeing what happens, trying to build some different layers, the cake/frosting patina seemed to wear off a little after using the light, but that may be the way to go after I see what the mustard does.

here it is after the egg, notice the pink section on the head where it got stripped

I just got a copper Maratac. One of the things I like about copper and brass is that the patina makes it uniquely yours.

the mustard was definitely the harshest / most reactive. I had the light clipped to inside top of ziplock with some mustard smeared on it an a cap full of mustard on the bottom, but it fell down overnight into the mustard lol, green scales had formed, I wiped it off and more was stripped, but getting a very cool camo pattern, will follow up with pics after it sits for a few days out in the open.
