I admired a beautiful fold-formed copper cuff bracelet at a gem show
recently. It had a flame patina and a high gloss finish. I asked
about the finish, and was told it was acrylic. I want to preserve the
nice luster I have on my copper and brass pieces, and I want to keep
them from turning my skin green, too. I’ve had the best luck with
spray lacquer, but I’d like to know if there is something better.
I’ve tried renaissance wax with no luck, and acrylic spray & liquid
that were not the best results.
