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 for an hour then leave it to dry for a day or so.
