I recently refinished and antiqued an old chest of drawers. I crackled all of the flat surfaces and painted all of the trim lines and the scroll work with gold paint. I'm not sure how to antique the gold areas. Any suggestions?

If it were me I would use some burnt umber oil on a cloth and just rub a bit on. You can then remove or add as you please to get the look you are going for.
