Does brass tarnish in water?
Tarnish is a mild form of corrosion caused by exposure of copper to the environment. Salt, in particular, tarnishes brass quickly and must be kept away from brass intended to be kept shiny. Chemicals in rainwater, tap water and air, as well as those found on our fingers and in food, are also corrosive.
By coating the freshly polished metal with lacquer, you should be able to keep shiny brass from tarnishing — until the lacquer wears off, at which time you can strip what remains and start over.
