I Need to Know How to "Age" the Look of New Chrome





I have a pedestal sink from the 1800's that I'm going to install in a new home. The fixtures can't be used on it, so I have a brand new chrome faucet that I would like to give an "aged" look to. I've been told that it can be acid washed, but I don't want to do anything without having really good instructions. Any advice please?

The best way to age metal is to soak it in vinegar [in bulk on eBay or Amazon affil links] for an hour then leave it to dry for a day or so.
