In Response To: Re: Aging metal screws (Tom Dew)

I just finished aging a set of cast iron, soft steel, and zink plate stove parts. The results were quite good. As I was using the electrolesis method for removing rust with a battery charger and water. The rust came off fine but when I wiped down the parts, all were very dark and had a convincing aged look. Just suspend the steel parts below the water line but not touching the metal pail the water is in. Put the positive clamp from the charger onto the metal pail, and the negative clamp onto the metal parts hanging in the water. The metal will look very old and dark after 10 to 20 hours.
