[Music Playing] Today, we will be using Simichrome polish, to polish and restore a lamp brass base. So, to apply the Simichrome polish, I always take a little bit and just put it on my nitrile glove and I do that for two reasons, one thing is you can spread the polish out evenly and get it into intricate places and details like you see on this lamp font. And also, you do not use so much polish, because it does not get soaked into a rag. So, you just let it sit there for a minute and you can apply this polish actually with any type of cloth. We use a micro fiber cloth here at our shop, but you could also use a T-shirt or even a paintbrush if you are using it in a can instead of a tube. So, then you just polish it right off and buff. And, I think you can see the results, because with an antique you will not want to get it too shiny, but it does restore it, cleans it and just puts a little bit of highlight to the high spots. This concludes my demonstration for a Simichrome polish this morning. All products are shown today, they are available at out sister website www.WinterBrookFarmAntiques.com. And please join us on the next episode. [Music Playing]
