"Obtaining an Antique green patina on a old brass bed"



2005

I want to obtain an antique green finish on an old brass bed...that I saw on HGTV that was accomplished by "soaking" the brass hardware in ammonia for 10-14 days....MY dilemma is...the bed is tooo big to soak ....how can I still accomplish this process....maybe wrap in ammonia soaked towels.....? Please advise.
