    Thats interesting guys, I was never sure how they colored the hero. So you just leave it out in the air and let nature do the work? Is there a certain min. amount of time?

    It will only start to rub off if you purposefully try to remove it by rubbing it over and over again. Also, as time passes, the color remains more and more permanent. It's easier to remove by rubbing when the metal is freshly aged.

    LOL... that's mainly why, since I have started weathering the metals naturally, I am going to get them weathering far in advance so when I finally work with the pieces, they've been sitting around for several weeks. That should produce a really nice appearance and one that should last as well. But I have screwed up the coloring of pieces by touching them too much just as they are starting to weather... bad idea.
