I’m looking for a treatment for brass that can be applied easily but will not weaken or otherwise damage the metal. I need it to produce a distinctive non-brass look, although the resulting color isn’t all that important. Do you make such a product, and how does it work?

The Jax Blackening, Darkening and Antiquing Solutions create an oxide on the surface of the brass. This oxide should not weaken or damage the metal at all — these are decorative finishes. Our products work by dipping or brushing the chemical onto the metal; clean metal is essential for a quality finish. Washing with water after darkening is also necessary.
