Step 1 - Clean the Brass

Tarnish can hinder the brass lacquer from doing its jobs. Use the rubbing alcohol and the sponge to remove the tarnish. Make sure you cover the entire object. Use a towel to wipe off any remaining residue.

Step 2 - Polish the Brass

Use the dust cloth to polish the brass. These clothes are perfectly infused with the right amount of oils to properly polish the metal.

Step 3 - Buffing the Brass

Apply a small amount of abrasion cream on a towel and wipe down the object. Make sure you get it all over. Use a new towel to wipe off and buff the brass.

Step 4 - Prevent Tarnish

Lightly dampen a towel with olive oil and rub the brass object down with it. Use a clean cloth to wipe off the oil. This prevents tarnish and creates a shine.

Place the object to be covered with brass lacquer in a well-ventilated area. Spray the entire object with the brass lacquer and allow it to dry.
