Antiquing Brass or Bronze
There are many commercially available products that can be applied to copper alloys to accelerate the oxidization process. Many of these are available in local hardware store paint departments. For the names of product suppliers, contact Wagner directly.
Here is a blacksmith recipe provided by Travis Fleming of Fleming Iron Works:
- 1 qt. white vinegar
- 1 qt. ammonia
- 1 cup lemon juice
- 1 tbs. salt
Clean the copper, then spray it on. It will turn in a few minutes
