Hi, Gail. Brass Darkening Solution [linked by editor to product info at Rockler] will turn brass a dark antique color. Liver of Sulphur [linked by editor to product info at Amazon] will turn silver blackish.

You can't make silver into a "yellow" metal, because it is a "white" metal, but you could consider applying a Rub'N'Buff [linked by editor to product info at Amazon]. Good luck with it.
