Could someone please suggest a simple method to 'Japan' tin objects...even if the method is not a true Japanning process?

Many thanks.

Well for what it's worth tin plate was an alternative to japanning so why japan over the tin plate?

On metal the method I learned was to bake on lacquer and one imitation used on the frontier was to coat in linseed oil and the heat until set.
