I got my hands one one that was in the original steel. I arranged to have it copper plated. What are some good techniques to put a brown patina on it.



Edit. I got some brown antiquing copper agent.

To create the original look, after the browning agent, buff small areas with a small buffing wheel, going down to the copper below, creating the original style pattern. Then clear coat it.

Can you please post the details of this "browning agent" - maker, source, content, technique...and maybe a photo of the label?

On my Opera, the shut off rod is fine, but the rubber bumper on the end wore off. It's about the size of a pencil eraser. Any suggestions for replacing that?
