Can a patina be applied to chrome



2003

Good Afternoon,

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!

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.
