  • Brass - how to color or burnsih

    I have a project idea in which I would like to end up with a burnished brass appearance. (Knobs for a dresser) I had thought about etching it like I did for the brass plate project on my lathe.

    But thats not quite the look that I want. What is the best way for a feller to do this? Is there a die that will etch the brass? Can I stain some clear coat and dip the brass? Any thoughts?
