Antiquing Hardware

Being able to add a custom patina to off-the-shelf hardware opens up a lot of possibilities for your projects. The ammonia, muriatic acid, and lacquer thinner you might need are available at your local home center or hardware store. THe darkening solution I used was from the Woodsmith Store (465399). I also found darkening solutions at Van Dyke's Restorers (02249614 & 02001547). Information for both sources is shown below.
