This has been brought up before, " how to preserve patina" I found this today in the Eastwood catalog . I don't know how well it works but it sounds like what people are looking for. I probably will buy one and try it. Hope this helps those who are looking for this type solution. Tom
Here's the link; http://search.eastwo...atina preserver
I can't get link to work , go to Eastwood.com and type in "patina preservation "

Sounds like something interesting.

Thanks for the link Tom. :thumbs:

 

I've got one that I'd like to preserve. Going to do a little research, and

a test on something.

I'm curious about that.  I've heard it is pretty decent stuff, but I've never seen it used in real life.

   Trowel had a thread on here for this stuff I believe, he had used it and wad waiting to see how it worked.  I cant copy and past the thread so someone will have to find it and do it I they want.

I know a guy who uses a semi gloss clear coat, he just knocks it down with scotch bright and sprays it.

Its a flat/satin clear.. You still have to prepare your surface for proper adhesion.  It's likely decent enough as a temporary sealant but no substitute for a fresh coat of paint.  I have applied flat clear to complete vehicles to attain a particular finish. 

Tip,,,,the best paint stirring stick is the wifes electric hand mixer..

Warning...paint stains the plastic mixer!  No chemical in my shop will remove those stains,,not even lacquer thinner
