Can a patina be applied to chrome
I have been searching the web to no avail. I am hoping to refinish a very large glass table & am trying to find out if there is any way to apply a patina to chrome to give it an antique appearance. If so, any recommendations on what to use and specific techniques would be very much appreciated. Thanks for all your help!Steph Provost

I don't think so. Learn to love chrome :-)
But you can have the chrome stripped with muriatic acid, leaving nickel plating, will be be slightly yellowish and more subtle looking.
