WHAT IS ENAMELED COPPER?
Enameling is glass fused to metal at high heat. Enamels are finely ground glass, like fine sand (or even more finely pulverized and mixed with an oil or adhesive). They may be opaque or transparent; their colors come from the use of various oxides.
How to care for enameled copper: Enamel is glass, not paint, so it does not fade under ultraviolet light. There is no particular care needed, you can wash it with water and/or wipe it with a cloth if needed.
