I'm installing stainless steel sockets in my new house and I'm wanting some contrasting bronze screws. I've installed stainless steel screws into bronze fittings before, and I really like the contrast. However, I don't want the screws to be a dirty brass colour, I'm wanting a bright, shiny bronze finish to the screws. Does anyone know what screws I need please?

As above you want polished brass screws

Try giving Wandsworth or Forbes and Lomax a bell

Antique brass screws are as close as you are likely to get. Failing that Humbrol model paint #55 is metallic bronze 😁

I prefer the phosphor bronze to antique brass screws, but either would be fine if I could find some with 0.6mm metric coarse threads.

If they are brass,and not brass coloured,ensure they are screwed in carefully,and the tapped holes are mint.
I have a large collection of brass,copper and gunmetal machine screws.....sadly ,all in imperial,BA and spurious clock and gaming machine threads😝

We use a limited range of silicon bronze fasteners and we purchase from a marine supplier for standard stock items or have to get them custom made for more speciality stuff. Bronze is hellish expensive and difficult to source but should be available at most big marine distributors.

I'd personally look at paint effects such as Rust Oleum Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint. They also do a Classic Bronze, Brilliant Bronze, Dark Bronze to name but a few.

Spray paint will be a lovely finish, and that Rustoleum spray paint has some good reviews, but I'll probably have to do a couple of coats so the driver doesn't scratch the paint off when I install it. I'm starting to think that screw cover caps might be less time consuming if there are any that aren't bulky?

Do you know if rustoleum would run off the surface of polypropylene? I am thinking about spray painting uniscrew caps
