Im not really a brass person, proly because of the smell and patina itself. It looks nice anyway. but Im curious doesn't the green stuff stick to your hands?  *lbunny*

The patina doesn't rub off on your hands. I would assume it will eventually wear off though.

Is there actually a way to keep the polished finish of the brass on? Only thing i hate about brass is i have to polish every time it starts to accumulate patina. :/ and polishing has this way of eating out the engravings... If not, then i guess gold plating is the way to go. Ehehe

A lacquer would solidify the shine of the brass and cut the polishing
