Does Vinegar Age Metal? I love that worn, aged metal… you know that vintage look that makes a piece look like it’s lived a long life! Well, today I’ve got an easy trick where you can age brand new metal to get that look. So let’s see how to age metal!
Does Vinegar Age Metal
Here’s what I started with…
this stainless steel bucket that I picked up at my local hardware store. I took some sandpaper to the outside and scuffed it up a bit. You are just trying to create a surface where the vinegar can penetrate a little easier.
So I placed the stainless steel bucket in a bowl and filled the outside with white vinegar. I used beans and popcorn to help hold it down, so it stayed submerged. Then I let the bucket soak over night in the vinegar and here’s what I had in the morning.
Some gentle, gorgeous aging.
Isn’t that just amazing?? Who knew it would be so easy to age a metal bucket!
I think if it soaked the bucket even longer in the vinegar it might age more? But I love the gentle worn look that it ended up with.
So if you were wondering how do I age metal with vinegar… I hope this easy tutorial answered your question!
