Re: Bottom paint on prop

For a bronze prop, use Petit Zinc Barrier spray. It's not expensive. Just prep the prop properly (nice alliteration) bringing it down to bare clean metal and then wiping it down with MEK or acetone. Spray only two or three thin coats 20 minutes apart. It has worked well for me with very light growth over the course of a season.
