ClearGuard is one of the best sealant options that I've found for use with my Color Me This metal patinas, as well as with many other patina options. I've tested 5 or 6 others (and thrown out the cans) as none gave me the results that I wanted. With proper application of the Color Me This patinas and the spray lacquer, you can seal with ClearGuard and know that the color won't change, shift, chip or degrade. I've cut my colored/sealed copper and brass sheet with shears and with disk cutters with no quality issues. I've lightly domed and occasionally lightly tumbled (I ALWAYS test a piece first!) with no quality issues. And the Matte finish is amazing (see 4th photo example), if you prefer a non-shiny look.
Follow all instructions on the label carefully and use in a well-ventilated area!
In addition to the drying completely clear, these sealants are guaranteed for 10 to 15 years outside, so that means you can professionally finish your patinated designs and your customers can safely wear them. ClearGuard is UV stable and highly resistant to weather, water, and chemical damage. It also resists marring and perspiration better than most solvent lacquers.
This listing is for ONE 12oz spray can in Matte finish (shown in 4th photo example). I can cover approximately 100 small pieces of metal with 2 coats on both sides from ONE 12oz spray can.
Ground shipping ranges from $14 to $16 depending on the part of the country you are in. I'll refund excess shipping after I get the final cost at UPS.
If you are ordering patinas or other products, as well, I can either ship them out separately (usual the same day as your order or the next day). If you want the order combined with the ClearGuard, I'll refund the shipping overage via PayPal.
