Age new galvanized metal with only vinegar

Galvanized metal reacts to vinegar and an oxidization process starts.  This will also work on silver plate.  Vinegar doesn't hurt stainless steel so I did this in my kitchen sink.  I put about two inches of vinegar in the sink and lay the bucket down in it.  we rotated the bucket every half hour or so.  The longer a section is in the vinegar, the more it ages.
