Opaque paint gathers in the recessed portions of the light fixture or hardware, while protruding details reveal glimmering bits of gold or brass.

Disassembling the fixture will also make it harder to miss any spots.
A matte, verdigris finish that simulates an aged patina is easy to create on gold or brass light fixtures or cabinet hardware.
