I'm getting started early on thinking about and working on Christmas presents for this coming Christmas.  I was wanting to make some clay props for my friend's kids (a sheriff's badge mainly right now) and was wondering how I'd go about making it have a kind of aged looked to it.  I'm going to be using sculpey clay and Krylon metallic gold paint. 

I want it to kind of have the look of this one;

With the color and such.  My shape will be different.

Anyway, what's a good way to go about doing this?  I don't have any kind of distresser ink or ink pads of any kind and I'm really  not wanting to buy some just for this one project.  So what's a good, cheap way to go about this?  Would an acrylic paint work?  I will also have words stamped into the object as well.  Probably Sherrif and their names.

My kids are older now, but in their youth they had a much loved set of cardboard boxes that became forts, race tracks, stages, whatever.  Its time for them to go, but I'd like to preserve a few of the smaller ones for them.  The cardboard is colored like a brick, and is about the half the thickness of a packing box.  I have no idea how to proceed, but I know you will!  Thanks!
