You may try to use the CAP STABILIZER from Atotech which is a non-chromic, non-electrolytic bright dip additive based on 35% Hydrogen Peroxide [linked by editor to product info at Amazon] and sulfuric acid. CAP STABILIZER is used for chemical brightening for brass and copper alloys.

Looking for something to paint or spray on a brass bed, to keep it from tarnishing, also looking for procedure for preparing the brass for this finish, any help?

Although there are newer and more exotic technologies available, someone who is refinishing a brass bed for their own use rather than as a business would probably just lacquer it or clearcoat it. Companies such as the site's supporting advertisers Everbrite and G J Nikolas can offer the product and application hints.
