 Darkening Solution for Nickel

M-3NA ...8oz.Works similar to reguglar ager only this will darken New Nickel Plated Hardware. May not work on Electro Plated Items.


Use as a dip or paint it on. To stop darkening process just put hardware under water. Dipping will result in a more consistant darkening when doing muliple items. Dry the hardware. Then use a polish to highlight the top surface. Gives brass hardware an antiqued look. Our #J-3450 Nevr-dull metal polish works well to highlight. When used as a dip use a non-metal container. See label for complete instructions. ***It will not work on our Trunk Hardware with a "D" in front of the item number. You can do some of the trunk hardware if you grind through the brassy finish then the solution will darken those areas giving a simulated antique "Blotchy Look" like old trunks look. Antiqued Hardware can't be returned.***
