How do you stabilize the color of Buri Beads. I have bought some that were not colorfast. Can I soak them in White Vinegar to make them colorfast?

Mona Lisa™ Metal Leaf™ top coat sealant seals and protects dyed beads. Carefully wipe the dirt and oil residue from the beads with a clean cloth. Apply a thin coat of Mona Lisa Metal Leaf with a paintbrush, and let dry overnight for a glossy finish.

For a matte finish use SpectraFix™ spray to protect the color.

Avoid using vinegar as this is an acid and could damage the finish on the Buri beads.
