Gold plate them :slight_smile:

On a more serious note, there is no good permeant way to do so.
Coatings can last a while but eventually will fail. So it is better
IMO to not coat them and educate the customer that they will change
with wear.

I’m with James, bronze patinates naturally over time, and can look
earthy.

I have had good success with the nano ceramic plating system but
after a fewyears it will need to be re plated, which is not bad for
business if you inform the client about this before they buy the
item.
