Hi! So lately, I've been kind of sad with how my horn looks. So I figured I'd try to do a new finish or something, and I'd like to give it a brushed finish, but I don't know how! Any suggestions? Also, if there really isn't a good way to do that at home, what would be a good alternative?
I considered removing lacquer to see it's original shine again, but I would want to lacquer it again and I'm not sure if I'd have to send it into the shop. If anything, I'm trying to avoid sending it to the shop. I'm trying to get my horn as pretty as possible without having to pay a lot.
To give an example of what I mean by brushed is this
Of course not as perfect, but still. Also, I'm not sure if it matters but my horn is a Bach beginner trumpet and is nickel plated.
