    Fuller's Earth is used to age costumes and sets. It is usually composed of bentonite and looks like dust. It is sterile and safer to use than real dirt or dust. I use a product that is made of talc and pigment. I use it on costumes, furniture and actors. After applying it I usually spray a light coat of hairspray over it to "fix" it in place.

    I've heard using muriatic acid will make the metal look old. I'd recommend testing a small area first. As always, be very careful using it. Read all the warnings, etc. I've never done it myself, maybe someone else here has used this technique?
