Brass & Copper Tumble

Can you tumble brass (jewelers brass - nugold) & copper together? If so, is it worth adding the burnishing to it.
Thank you Stacy
Thanks for your question Deb Mae! Yes, you can tumble different metals together. I do so all the time. I'm not quite sure what you mean by, "...add the burnishing to it." Tumbling your items in the regular way — water, Dawn dish soap, stainless steel shot — should result in polished, shiny pieces when you remove them. You can use a burnishing solution instead of the liquid dishsoap, but only if you are tumbling items that you have not added a patina to.
