Here we go for the last step
Wear is applied with still wool or pumice
Brass is paler than gold so I spray it with my beige and orange shellac to tune up the color.
Then I spay the all thing to seal and protect all the surfaces.
You have to spray from far so It does not coat the surface but land as pebbles and keep a none varnished look which makes it look like plastic
The brass turn slightly pinkish coper like with the orange shellac
so I finish it up with blond and beige.
Wear and patina
A little clean up just enough to loose a ball, i have to put it back… installing the mirror, et voilà.
From junked trashed antique
To good looking again. Ready to find a home
Thanks for following the progress on that job!
