Luxurious (polished)- polish the steel with metal polish or toothpaste. You can even give the item a mirror-like polish. Test on a small surface first!
Handmade (matte)- soak the steel in cola for 40 minutes to 20 hours. Check regularly and treat with black sandpaper.
Antique (patinated) leave the steel to rust for some time in a damp environment, preferably outside. Remove the red layer of rust, to reveal the corroded top layer.

Reviews for product "RFB medieval cuirass"
Less LARP'y and actually looking really good when it arrived. The straps are actually just a single leather strap, opposed to the shoulder strap to single strap system on the pictures, which makes it look much more authentic. Only star lost is because the buckles at the bottem, which I am going to change to a more medieval looking ones.
