Here is the Haunted Key I received, nice and new, from the manufacturer. It was so bright and shiny that seemed to be missing something.

I buried it in my backyard over the summer, and now it has some serious mojo. To me, it looks like it really could be haunted!

Nice work - that key looks deadly good! I wouldn't use it near any open wounds ; )

Looks so much better now, was it a magic dealer that sold you the shiny one.

Why do you buy a magic prop to customize it instead of buying an real antique key on a flee market or Ebay ?!

I have old antique key's and some do work well,the magic prop one's I have ever brought have been like copper substance and will not rust and I had a treated one that just chipped off,nice one if you can get them to rust like that and are a nice key to perform with.

And the price for the ageing materials was right.

I like the whole DIY aspect and think it sounds like a fun/easy project to get a key designed for this use to look the part you will play - So many of the keys at flea markets and e-bay are overpriced reproductions anyway - Also Peter is right, the price was right! My favorite is still the Carlyle key though - He is so very generous with his video/skype live training and the money goes to a true legend in the industry.

10 cents on a Flea Market, took me less than 1 minute to find. Works perfectly... No need to age, except if you want a specific aging. But they were more or less 100 differents keys with different patinas. Mostly rusty.

Hi Curator - That is a very nice looking key! - unfortunately the only antiques I can find at the outdoor markets in Hawaii are old souvenir t-shirts that never sold and some other odds and ends - We do have antique shops here but they are very expensive. I love to see all your amazing finds and envy your access to the antique markets in your area. I think the next time I travel to the mainland I will make it a point to look up a few.

Very nice aging - looks a lot like the Haunted Inns one I have.

HauntedKeys from magic companies are typically balanced making the effect much easier to perform. Finding that perfect key at a flea market etc may take minutes or years depending on your luck. I definitely think a real antique key rules the roost but that's a pretty decent solution in the meantime. That fun inckey sells at my shop for $10.95 to 12.95 depending on if I want a drink with my ramen noodles or not. ...so its not a big investment andthat aging looks great!

I prefer to soak them in cadaver urine. Only takes a couple weeks.

And it imparts a truly irresistible, one of a kind bouquet.
