Patina.... Needed: vinegar, white or apple cider, salt, just regular old salt out of my shaker.  Either soak over night or sprinkle with salt and spray vinegar for a blotchy look

Patina--vinegar (white or apple cider) and salt. For small items, fill a quart yogurt container half full of vinegar, and sprinkle in about 1 tsp salt. Add any metal you want to 'age'. Seal if you touch items a lot
