Quoting Mansell Peter Hambly <mphcd@...>:

A druggist suggested to etch brass in vinegar by soaking it for no more
than thirty minutes, wash it with liquid dish soap and dry it in an
oven.

Works great, especially when you use Scalecoat I paint afterwards and
bake it for about three hours at 150 degrees afterward. Any subsequent
coats shold only need about two hours each. Have used this method for over
thirty years for brass and have seen nothing better yet in spite of all the
hype over some of the newer "paints".
