    Clear gloss spray paint

    Have no access the brass lacquer, so is rust oleum clear gloss clear spray paint good alternative for brass lacquer? BTW what is lacquer thinner?

    Only if you want sub par results. Laquer thinner? Just as it sounds

    From Bunnings, White Knight Rust Guard 300g Clear Guard Topcoat for Alumimium, Brass and Copper. I have used on brass objects successfully, but not on a trumpet, with care could be reasonably good for a D-I-Y.

    Lacquer Thinners can contain a mix of Amyl or Butyl Acetate, Acetone, Methyl Ethyl Ketone, Toluene and Alcohols.

    Regards, Stuart.

    Brass lacquer, at least back in the days before the epoxy finishes, was nitrocellulose lacquer. I don't know what's available to you there in New Zealand, but any gloss clear lacquer finish is going to be what you want if you are going for actual lacquer. Some finishes like Deft, that don't openly advertise as being nitrocellulose lacquer, are actually nitro lacquers.

    Otherwise, I'd think that any clear finish, for your project, would probably be ok.
