How to "Distress" Chrome Plating
July 28, 2021
Q. Hi everyone
I have a decent quantity of small new chromed parts but my customer wants a dull antiqued finish. Can anyone suggest how to do this easily and cheaply. Not looking for anything radical just want to dull the chrome and maybe get a antique copper/brass appearance
