Keeping Brass and Silver-Plate From Getting Tarnished

To keep brass collectibles or silver-plated picture frames or various what-knots from tarnishing try this: While the item is new and bright colored, spray it with two coats of clear lacquer/shellac. Let it dry completely between coats. It will not tarnish in the future. This method can also be used on plastic/poly-resin items that are exposed to sunlight to keep them from fading so quickly. Examples: yard decorations and items indoors that are left near a window sill.
