Does anyone know how to age shiny brass and make it look like antique brass? Would soaking it in paint remover do the trick or is there something else? I'm trying to give a pair of candle sconces an aged look. ;o)
I heard you should use vinegar but have never tried it. I just paint mine.
Vinegar was the first thing that came to mind when I read your question, same as PF. I would try it on the bottom first, just in case.
However, I googled it and have enclosed the site that says to use ammonia fumes. Hope it works. Several other sites in the lists also had ammonia in their short statements.
