Looking to add an antique look to the brass on a T/C Hawken I just picked up.
What is the best way ?

Find some antique brass to use as a model. You’ll notice the surface isn’t smooth under the patina.

Age from honest use is IMHO the best route to an end result. Handle, shoot and clean. This will give you some contrast. Some areas will dull and others will be shiny from use. Just like the brass band on my picture at the left.
