Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2018: Correct oxidation for 1911 hubcaps

The encyclopedia states that late 1911 hubcaps are oxidized in the recess surrounding the Ford script. What color is this oxidation, and how do you achieve that color on a repro part? Thanks, Bill

Hello Bill:
Black Patina wash is sold for antiquing stained glass zinc, brass, and solder...any stained glass supplier sells it. For hi-lighting, such as hub cap script, the solution is applied, dried, then high spots are buffed to create contrast, where the patina coverage is much thinner than covering with paint. I use it for antiquing household brass fixtures.
Regards,
Scott

William-
Please post pictures of your process and let us know how it goes. I need to do the same with my restored 1911 hubcaps.
