Questions & Answers

What would happen if the solder turned black as a result? There are some small brass parts that I have Thanks so much. ?

I have not tested it on steel screws, but it worked for me on brass screws

Is this going to help with the restoration?

This may or may not be the case. Whether the faucet and drain are made out of real brass or a veneer will determine whether they will last. The material can be real brass if that is the case. If you have achieved the finish you desire, I recommend using Renaissance Micro for the next step To make sure the finish is protected, use Crystalline Wax Polish. You will be successful with your project! Best wishes!

In order to enhance the color, what kind of oil should be used?

You can even use

It should be able to work with Melchior since it is mostly copper. The color bronze.

You can DIY at Patina
4/5

The product was used to darken the brass drawer pulls for some bedside tables that my wife painted. First, I had to boil off the shellac on the pulls with a baking soda and water mixture, then dip them It was simple to rinse and install the pulls after they dried, rather than getting crazy with the finishing.

There are no other options for me, so I'm hoping it will solve Several calibers that aren't very common are there in the arms accumulator A 62x25 print, and a 7x10 print I bought recently
5/5

The Browning 65 I will be using the 32ACP). These are hard to obtain, but since I reload, I have no problem providing them with ammunition. Those are both quite small cartridges, and the 7 is even smaller. It was suggested to me by colleagues when I proposed spraying Here is my brass after painting it. As you can see in the picture, there is a HUGE difference between before and after application. The recommendation was to swab it on, but I found that it would be more effective to put a little in a disposable plastic container and shake.

The best way to remove nail polish is with nail polish remover and a light sander
5/5

As you apply more coats, the darker the result will be. In fact, this does work, but you can't just take it and hope that it will work. The best way to remove nail polish is with nail polish remover and a light sander. You can apply more coats of the brass to make it darker. The technique has been used on a large dresser and drawers, a small dresser, as well as an edge detail on a glass cabinet door. Adding this patina to brass is an inexpensive way to update a dresser and it gives it that perfect antique look.

Birchwood Casey's goods are excellent, as they always are
5/5

You can use this method on brass/bronze, etc. If your items are brass, etc. Your results may not be as good if your surfaces are plated or clear coated. Essentially, the handles are made of a stamped metal base with a brass-looking brass plate on top and what looks like a It seems like ours used to be painted in the past, so some of them were not as well-made as others, but those with a uniform surface before, ended up looking very good after. This finish is similar to steel that has been blued There is a deep sheen to it, and it appears to be very durable (it is not a "layer", like paint, it is part of the It doesn't work by diluting with water, I tried it and it is not recommended. Moreover, my recommendation is to dip. Using a Q-letter for an application Consistency of tip is not as good as it could be. dry off. In the end, we managed to treat a few dozen handles and hinges with the small bottle, but only just. The bigger bottle is better for those who have more parts. The product is excellent.

My brass item would not stay black
3/5

I was able to get the “black” on the brass to stay, but I could not get it to stick. There might be a mistake in the instructions, but after rinsing the black came right off if I nudged or bumped it. Use of a clear coat may help keep it on longer.

I have found this approach to be very effective
4/5

My job involves working with old toys, and when the blackened parts start rusting, I put them in When this is done on occasion, the blackened finish can be completely removed.

A solution has been found to the problem
4/5

During the renovation, I accidentally removed the finish from the antique bronze drain in our bathroom. As a result, the issue was resolved. I also tried it on the faucet on my mother's sink, but I think that her problem was a flawed Although this was not as good as having to replace the fixtures, it was better than having to take out the old ones.

On brass keys, the lubricant works well
4/5

My brass keys were transformed into black using this method. My goal was to get a long-lasting color, so I applied about 5 coats before finally getting the color I liked. After spraying them with matte spray varnish, they now look like a nice, dark black. This does not chemically alter the metal though, so, after a few weeks, the brass is showing through again. (These are keys, after all, lots of friction. ) But, it was so easy to use that I am not worried about having to touch them up again in the future. I recommend it!.
