Are you interested in giving bright brass that aged look? How about MULTIPLE ways to do it?

http://blog.yourstruli.com/2008/06/giving-brass-that-aged-look.html

Note: See if your item is truly brass or only brass COATED. Brass coated items may be stripped down to the base metal by some of these processes.

You can take brass all the way down to BLACK, if you so desire:

Good links, Darren.

I seriously about fell down laughing when I realized what the age markers were for.  Good video. I am going to go find the results video now.

Bad Finger has another method based on recycled beer that he used to patina a brass reso cone awhile back.

The only way that has worked for me, so far, is the fire method. Gives me a great aged look and is fast.
