    how about dark wax or some rub and buff? I think the rub and buff would be nice and do what you want.

    Annie Sloane offers a glaze that Sherrie has described. I saw it in a store here and it's great. You can use as much or as little as you want for the effect. Would be perfect for your project. The one I saw was gold, but I think it's offered in silver and bronze as well.
