How to age copper for kitchen rack


I am trying to find out how to age copper. I have a rack attached to my kitchen ceiling (to hang pots and kitchen utensils from) made of copper tubing. It is just a little green how can I make the whole thing look aged?

Did you get any help on the question of creating an aged copper patina? I have the same question in trying to restore some antigue pieces that have been polished. I want an old Arts and Crafts, Roycroft kind of patina
