Our fast-working ager leaves a lasting antique finish that would take decades to achieve with time alone.

Prep Work: Clean your metal parts of dirt and oil. Wear gloves so you do not leave fingerprints on the metal. You can use acetone to get parts completely clean if necessary.You must have metal with no clear coating on it. Acetone or stripper will remove any clear coating that you may have to get the piece down to the raw material. You can also for extra measure: Rub the piece down with #0000 Steel wool, and clean it well with paper towels and acetone making sure you do not touch it with your oily fingers.

Aging: Empty the ager into a glass or plastic container. Submerge the parts to be aged. If you are not able to submerge the parts, you can heavily brush on or spray the pieces, just make sure you have a catch tray to be able to reuse the solution. The aging will take place quickly so watch the process. When you have achieved the patina you are looking for remove and rinse with tap water. You can also have a dish with water to move small pieces into as they finish. Remove parts from the water and dry with a clean towel. Some of the antique finish will come off during the drying process which is OK. If you want a darker finish, repeat the aging process described above. If the piece is darker than desired or you prefer highlights, use a metal polish and soft cloth to achieve the desired finish. Steel wool can be used as well to create highlights on the finished piece. Return the ager to the bottle for future projects. When aging slows the product is nearing the end of its aging ability.
