Clear Lacquer for Brass?


#1

I have some simple brass pendants which I’ve worked to the perfect
brushed. semi-matte finish. NOw the question is how do I keep this
appearance instead of the downward spiral of tarnishing. I’ve read
somewhere one can use Nikolas 2105 Spray Lacquer on brass. Does this
create a really shiny finish because I am not looking for that.

I’ve also read something called JAX Tarnish Preventor. I am wonder
what that does, how permanent it is and if its safe against the
human skin.

Thank you!

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
any wear.

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,

What about trying Renaissance Wax? It will retard the tarnish and
has not produced a shine when I have used it to protect Patinas.
