Make your own weathering. Take one gallon of household vinegar and dissolve a pad of 0000 steel wool in it. Put the pad into the gallon of vinegar and let it steep for 24 hours. Cover the opening with a cloth and string or rubber band. Not the original cap. Put the solution in a plastic sprayer and lightly wet the wood. As the solution dries it will turn gray and then darker. Try it on a test piece first. Add water to the sprayer to dilute for your desired effect. I bet you’ll like it…........
