Antiquing parts for an old revolver

I’m no gunsmith at all, that’s why most everything goes to Gary and his guys. I wanted to add a little bling to this old Linebaugh Big 5, (2 digit) early build. Fitted a new RW Gripframe to the gun, then fitted the micarta. Got a bottle of brass black for the antique look. Added 2 coats and rubbed off more in the “wear areas” to make it look like actual use of an older gun. I think the discolored brass really accents the original old plum colored bluing. Scuffed up the micarta to make it a little dull too.
