Laquer for brass

Have some brushed brass grid switch plates which are looking past their best. Obsolete design, so can't just replace them. Removing the old lacquer and sanding them down looks fine - but what lacquer to use? Preferably an aerosol. A slightly brown tinted lacquer which darkened them slightly would match the original best.

I agree. I use the brush on version http://marinestore.co.uk/Incralac_Rylard_Brass_Lacquer_500ml.html but from memory they do it an aerosol.

Thanks - aerosol found. Think it will be better for this application. Is it totally clear or slightly tinted?

When I used it on polished copper it appeared to be a clear finish.
Looking down inside the narrow neck of the can it does look clear but to be absolutely sure I placed a drop on a piece of white art card and it is very clear.

I wouldn't but then I like the patina that develops over polished brass, particularly on things that are used.

It wouldn't then match the others. An old design (round) switch might look ok like that - but I don't think it would suit a more modern one.
