Patina is nice and free if you are patient, not sure on any ways of speeding it up.

For the cogs and bits n bobs I would have a look at old mechanical clocks, can pick some up none functional for relatively cheap on ebay.

A nice brass tube to work on of course Smiling

RE: Steampunk
I have seen some mods that have been customised in this way .
One way of adding a "patina" of sorts to stainless steel is to heat it until it starts to "blue"

This sort of thing :

RE: Steampunk
It's not something I have done with any though beforehand (IE farted around heat stainless and "oo pretty colours")

Here's a thread about it over on ECig :

I would practice on some scrap stainless before risking any expensive kit .
