    I have several large brass items –mainly exterior door fittings etc- which regularly need cleaning. I can achieve a good finish with brass polish but inevitably after a year or so they begin to dull and tarnish.
    Of late I’ve used OOOO grade steel wool resulting in a good shine (no polish) but they need to be lacquered to last longer. Unfortunately I’m hopeless spraying lacquer – the finish I get is always mat.
    How many coats should be applied to achieve a gloss finish and should I rub down each coat? Any advice on procedure would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    Can’t help, sorry. But I’d advise you google this and see if there are any YouTube videos on this.
