Hello H Wu,
You asked about "...Nikolas 2105 Spray Lacquer on brass. Does this
create a really shiny finish because I am not looking for that. "
I have used this product for several years and it does leave a
shiney finish. Nikolas may make a lacquer with a matte finish, but
I suspect that a matte finish will polish up if it is subjected to
I don't have an alternative. You may have a problem achieving your
desired appearance and avoiding a tarnish.
Let us know what you decide,
