If extra protection is desired, use a spray-on or brush-on fixative. Both SpectraFix™ and Mona Lisa™ Metal Leaf™ sealant are good options. This will seal the beads so they can be safely cleaned with a damp cloth without affecting the metallic coating. To help keep the holes clean, string the beads onto a piece of stiff wire, pipe cleaner or like item, then areas apply the fixative. Let dry. A full drying time of 24 hours is recommended.
