Ye i thought about it but it covers the natural shine of the metal,the only things i can think of is clear nail varnish or clear wood varnish.

There must be some kind of clear metal varnish of some sort.

Chances are its already too late and they are tarnished. Mine started turning orange in under 24 hours.

what you are after is

Clear etch primer then lacquer

Been out of the trade for a few years now (4 or so) but clear etch USED to be fairly expensive.
