stonewash finish

How is it done?

It looks liked a tumbled finish. If it is, what is the media used and can it be done in a home shop?

Many years ago, I worked for a time in a factory where they deburred castings by tumbling them in a machine with something similar to a "soft" river rock, if that makes sense. It was a large open tub with stones in it that were moved by some kind of agitator. I would imagine it could be done on a smaller scale by using a tumbling device similar to what production bullet reloaders use to clean brass cases by changing the cleaning medium.

Just an idea. Hope it gets you started in the right direction.
