I would like to know what to put on brass that is out in the elements to keep it from tarnishing? Anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks Kathy

Hi Kathy . . .do a web search on Incralac. I think that is what is often used on bronzes located outdoors. The original version was solvent based; I think there is now a water based version with lower VOCs. But the info you find on the web is more likely referring to the solvent-based version. I haven't used it myself.

Nothing works for long term usage , all the lacquers etc start to peel or deteriorate or the brass starts tarnishing under them and its more difficult to get looking good again , 2 things do work , 1) Constant polishing with Brasso or the like and 2) Gold plating the brass.
