Silver plating in a can

Hi all
There is a method of silver plating that is created on the metal, ie a bare brass sax, by polishing. I am sure some are aware of this plating method. This method of platileave saves a thin coating of silver, that needs to be applied periodically to keep the silver appearance. I have the idea to  apply this polish silver on a set of sax keys, and then apply a clear lacquer to preserve the silver finish. Has anyone tried this and what are your thoughts ? Thanks

      I ordered a can of the silver plating polish, they say it is possible to build up the layer of silver.
      Will keep you posted.
