    Raw metal, use a vinegar solution, or as Keet says, use heat. I've "aged" metals using both methods. Here in NC, with high humidity, it's not real hard by leaving them outside either. I don't think that you should have too much of a problem with the weather in England, lol.
    If I put plates in the oven my wife will kill me. I am probably going to just strip the paint of and leave them. I have a steel bar in the garage that has a lovely patina to it. Hopefully the cast iron gets the same colour/texture

    I have some hex dumbells that do that, eyes are bad but back of the throat is worse!

    Ain't that the truth . Just make sure they are down to raw metal when you put them in the gar-ridge, then the will definitely patina.

    Tell you what. Lets swap, I have a set I got for free from some old guys back yard, they are rusty as fcuk. I have to get a tetanus shot every time I lift, my hands are slowly becoming a permanent copper color. I'll gladly swap mine for your non-rusty ones.

Man, there were blobs of softened paint and paint remover flying EVERYWHERE, and I'll tell you right now, that stuff burns like hell when you get it on your skin.
