As a jewelry designer, I work solely in brass, inks, acrylic and enamel paints. I was very frustrated when I would complete a clean vibrant piece of jewelry and it would turn dark and the inks would loose the luminence that I intended. One of my brass component suppliers suggested I try ProtectaClear and I was just thrilled with the results. The color mediums I use keep its freshness and the brass stays clean, bright and tarnish free. I sell my jewelry with confidence knowing that it will stay beautiful over time.Susan M CollettWallowa Mountain StudioJoseph, Oregon
Case Study: This wrapped copper and silver bracelet was coated with ProtectaClear and worn every day by a woman whose skin has always discolored when wearing copper. After 6 weeks of daily wearing, there is no wear on the metal and no darkening or discoloration of the skin.
These belt buckles have been protected with ProtectaClear to prevent tarnish and wear. ProtectaClear does not detract from the intricate detail of the metal.
ProtectaClear is very natural looking and will make the metal look like it is just polished. ProtectaClear can also be used to protect metals with patinas or plated metals.
I have used ProtectaClear and once I learn how to hang the product after I have coated it I will be very Happy. I strung the beads on a piece of copper wire dipped them and then hung them upside-down. I used bead spacers in-between the beads and that did not work all that well. Dipping the beads works OK but then Instead of hanging them end to end to dry I need to space them and turn the copper wire so they hang, as on a coat hanger. ProtectaClear does put on a great shine and I will use it on a lot of my designs. Thanks!

ProtectaClear can be used to protect jewelry that has patina from Liver of Sulfer and other patina's or even flamed copper. Here is a picture of silver beads which one bead has been treated with Liver of Sulfer.
Can you tell which bead is coated with ProtectaClear?

I tried ProtectaClear on some earrings and was pretty impressed. Since I sell my earrings, I need something that I know will last. So I used your "ProtectaClear" coating on my earrings. I will say that your product was described on your website as " self leveling" and it definitely is. The final result comes out pretty nice (IMHO). I like your product & will continue using it.Thanks for developing it - ProtectaClear answered a problem I was having. Cheers.
