Jax Gold Finish produces a simulated 24K gold finish on any brass surface and is effective for matching gold color. Unlike tinted lacquer, Jax can be applied in layers until the exact shade of gold is matched. Use on key touches, modifications, and any other areas that do not match the instrument's original gold color. We found this product to be easier to work with than tinted lacquer when matching gold color. Please note Jax will not match the darker hue of a vintage instrument, like a Mark VI, but is excellent for newer instruments.
Use on bare brass free of oil, grease, or lacquer. Dip the brass part into the solution or apply evenly with a clean cloth, small brush, or a pipe cleaner. The brass will slowly darken with each coat of Jax. You can accelerate the process by heating the brass carefully before applying the gold finish. The MusicMedic.com Vortex Air Torch is an excellent tool for gently heating the brass evenly and exactly to the desired temperature. Once the brass has reached the right shade of gold, simply rinse the brass off with water to stop the staining process.
Please read and follow all directions and cautions. Keep this and other chemicals out of the reach of children.
