Brass Leaf

How to re-patina a brass tabletop?

I have a coffee table with a formed brass tabletop with hand applied, antiqued patina. Over the years it has become scratched (the patina, not the actual metal) and unevenly colored because of spills. For example, if you spill a drop of wine on it and don't clean it up right away, it "cleans" off the patina and leaves a bright spot in it's wake. The bright spots eventually fade.

I would like to completely strip the patina off the table and reapply new, so that I can start fresh with a brand new looking coffee table. I have no idea where to start. Anyone ever attempted this?

Metal polish might do the trick. Be aware that after the lacquer has been removed polishing the table will have to be done regularly as there will no longer be a coating that prevents the brass from oxidising
Come to think of it you have answered your own question - next time you have a little left over wine, pour it on the table....
