We black powder coat the inside of the antique bronze. The reasoning behind this is not asthetics.


I'd gotten the want to coat the interior of my cups black after reading your post about hot dip solutions in a thread on getting a nice patina. I think it would look great, but looks like doing it right is something I'd need a bunch of equipment for. New cups would be easier!

Firstly, what is your opinion on coating the interior of the cup black? I think it would make the interior look smaller and give good contrast with the balls when finishing a routine.

Secondly, does anyone know of a way to do it to brass cups?


There's a product I've used to force a patina on a couple of brass bowls called "Brass Darkening Solution." It works very fast; indeed, if you keep something in the solution for little more than a minute, the patina is virtually solid black.

I don't know if the solution works on metals other than brass, but perhaps you could make the interior of your brass cups black by filling the cup with the solution rather than submerging it.
