What chemical will tarnish new, solid, polished brass? I am extending an antique pool table light with solid brass 3/4" tubing. I have removed the clear finish on it but I need to make the new brass look older to match the older brass?

Van Dyke's Restorations sells a chemical that artificially ages Bronze, Brass and Copper. Go to their web site and ask for a free catalog - or if you don't want to wait, here's their number for ordering.

Be warned, this stuff ain't cheap.
