They probably mean oil rubbed bronze which can be done in a faux finish layering dark brown and black with bronze highlights, otherwise you should try plating and then darkening that, jax has some good products for all that


dark brown , black highlights? Paint? or what type of product? bronze highlights? Paint or other? do you know of referance materal telling how to do this?

The technic I use for a faux finish is coat with a dark brown spray paint let dry then take dark walnut wood stain and dab it on with a dry paint brush to create a mottled look let that dry completly and seal with aclear coat.
Another technic is spraying the piece with a metalic bronze paint and then lightly spray dark brown then black holding the can back so to let the other colors show through.
But just try to google oil rubbed bronze finishes I'm sure you'll find many more ideas
good luck Marc
