    Here's some cool uke case patina. Got this case strictly as a safe shipping container. Took vinegar and aluminum foil to knock off the rusty flakes on the hinges. Thought about painting the hinges, but I like the worn, semi-rusty patina look of them. So, I'm just going to clear coat the hinges as is. They work fine and look cool.

    Nice old case hinges, Hodge! Agree with your idea to clear-coat the rust.

    Right! No wrinkles on my "vintage" neck, just "patina!"

    Probably not what you had in mind, and artificially created, but cool none-the-less. Used to have a chrome finish that got damaged, stripped, and an antique-like, bronze finish applied.
