    Darkening Solution … 73808

Before applying the darkening solution to the brass hammer head, be sure to sand the surface with 400-grit sandpaper. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions on the label when applying the darkening solution. When it was dry, I scuffed up the corners with a Scotch-Brite pad to add to the “aged” look.
