Has anyone used a brass home applied method to make an aluminum blade appear brass ?  I would like to make an aluminum vorty blade look like a brass blade rather than polished aluminum. I'm hoping for more of a translucent brass appearance than the painted gold used on Emerson juniors. Does anyone have recommendations with pictured results? thanks
