1. If you want to protect your metal garden art while it is still new, simply clean any oil or other contaminants from the copper or brass. This can be done by wiping the metal with xylene or denatured alcohol which can be purchased at most hardware or paint stores. This will ensure a completely clean surface so the Everbrite™ can go on evenly and will have good adhesion. Wiping with the solvents will not remove tarnish. If you want to let the metal tarnish slightly and would like to preserve the tarnish and not have it get any worse, then you can stop the advancement of the tarnish with an Everbrite™ Coating.

2. Once the metal is clean, Everbrite™ or ProtectaClear® can be applied by several methods. It can be sprayed on or wiped on the surface with clear-coat applicators, natural bristled paintbrushes, poly sponge brushes or a pad of lint-free cloth. Let it dry and enjoy your beautiful copper and brass Garden Art, weathervane, cupola, finial, copper gutters, wind chimes and more.

For exterior applications which do not get a lot of handling, Everbrite™  is recommended. For interior metal or metal that gets a lot of handling like railings, doorknobs, door knockers, etc, ProtectaClear®  is recommended.
