IN­STANT HARD­WARE PATINA

The Family Handyman - - HANDY HINTS -

I’ve found that gun blu­ing ($10 for 3 oz. at sport­ing goods stores) gives off-the-shelf hard­ware an at­trac­tive, aged patina. Sim­ply dip nuts, bolts, wash­ers or other hard­ware into a cup of gun blu­ing. When the hard­ware turns black, rinse it with wa­ter and dry it with a pa­per towel. Be sure to wear rub­ber gloves and eye pro­tec­tion. BRAD HOLDEN, AS­SO­CIATE ED­I­TOR
