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