Easy-

Choose a glass container with lid of sufficient size to contain the item requiring ageing. Find some cotton wool and soak in ammonia and place in bottom of jar. Suspend brass item in jar and attach top. Brass item will tarnish fairly rapidly say 20 minutes depending on room temperature. Remove from time to time to check amount of ageing required, then remove and nutralise ammonia with clean water. I did it last week!!!
