Want brass sealer for king-size brass bed




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

Bill,

There are lacquers made specifically for brass, by such companies as G.J. Nikolas [a finishing.com supporting advertiser]. 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 [on eBay or Amazon affil links] or acetone [on eBay or Amazon affil link]. 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.
