Johnson's floor wax (in the yellow can with the red stripe) is safe and good (we use it on the jewelry/small scale metal work we do at school to protect and lock in the patina). if you let your copper/brass patina to a level you like and then wax it the ptina will stay at that level too

Its good to have a metal expert here on the forum, lol!
