Hi, Gail. brass darkening solution [on eBay or Amazon affil link] will turn brass a dark antique color. [an error occurred while processing this directive] 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 [affil link]. Good luck with it.
