Making galvanised pots look older?

Oxon, United Kingdom Gb

I know you can 'age' terracotta pots with yogurt - have done it myself, but does anyone know if this works for galvanised items? Or is there another way that works fairly quickly?. Have thought of scratching the surface here and there to encourage rust but not sure it would actually work!.



Hi Mickledaisy well yoghurt certainly wont work :-) Not sure there is anything you can do which will make a galvanised planter look older!
