BRASS WASH FINISH


2002

How do I replicate a brass wash finish on steel, such as was used in the 30's and 40's on various parts such as Erector set pulleys, gears, etc.? From handling, time, and/or weather, these finishes wore off(sometimes completely) to the point where the part looks like plain steel. Even on a part that has withstood the age and handling, the finish appears as if it is a "watered-down" coating. There must be an easy to use and economical process to duplicate this type of coating. Please advise.

Thanks for the help.

I don't know if you've found a solution yet, but there's a product or company called Ti-Gold that is available in a brass finish. The titanium film supposedly also enhances the durability of the steel. Hope that helps.
