Osage orange finish

Ed Moore
>I have some nice yellow candlesticks of osage orange. I am curious if others have had any luck retarding the change of color that normally occurs with this wood.

1. Does lacquer with a UV inhibitor work? If so, where does one obtain such a lacquer?

2. Does Minwax Helmsman spar urethane help retain the color?

3. What finish do you like best on osage orange?

Thanks,

Ed
