    If you perfer the brass look then clean it and spray on a clear coat or two that way it is sealed and will stay shiney.

    I think I'm unclear as to what you want to do with this piece. Or what you have done and are using it for. ?

    I agree with Bonnie,don't paint the brass, polish it and seal with a clear coat sealer..

    Is it a cradle or a candle?

    Thanks for the suggestions. But I´ve heard that the coat sealer is not a long lasting solution. I ´d like to know if there´s a kind of paint or pátina I could use. Thanks. Love this page!!!

    I use a liquid cleaner and it's as easy as apply and rinse. No harsh chemicals. It's non toxic and odor free. The Victorian House on Oklahoma makes it. It's online now.
