Brass-plated lamp is rusted




I have a brass-plated lamp with rust, and I would like to know what is the best way to get rid of the rust. And is it better to leave it naturally or is it better to paint. If it should be painted what should you use?

You can use 5% ammonium citrate solution as rust remover (pH must be 9).As clearcoat you can use Everbrite [a finishing.com supporting advertiser] coating.Hope it helps and good luck!

You may try NH4OH.

Good luck.
