Silicone will prevent almost anything from sticking to it. If the object is to never paint it at any time in the future, then it's not an issue. Just don't spray it on while there are other sets nearby, especially those that need refinishing (or are in the process already). It's the usual cause of "fisheye" in lacquer coatings and in severe cases can allow the entire finish coat to just about fall off on its own.

Bakelite knobs and escutcheons go into my vibratory tumbler which is crushed walnut shells and polishing rouge. They come out high gloss.

I wish I had that available.
