Want brass sealer for king-size brass bed

Some clearcoating solutions (adv.)    g j nikolas banner   everbrite banner  


I have a king-size brass bed that I'm constantly polishing to keep my wife happy. Do you know of a reliable brass sealer that will not harm the bed's finish. The sealer needs to be durable as well because I move a lot.

Thanks, Bill

There are lacquers made specifically for brass, by such companies as G.J. Nikolas [Bellwood, IL]. Good luck.

I have the exactly opposite problem. Does anyone know how to remove this lacquer without damaging the brass finish?

Hi, Mandar. If it's actual brass lacquer, it is easily removed with lacquer thinner [linked by editor to product info at Amazon] or Acetone [linked by editor to product info at Amazon]. Good luck.

We had a hard finish on our brass headboard which was hard to remove so we soaked the pieces of the bed in radiator cleaner at our local radiator shop. The brass came out discolored but when we polished the pieces, they are beautiful. Now we just have to find out what to seal the pieces with. We are thinking maybe clearcoat as it is harder than lacquer.
