How to make soda pop aluminum look worn out? Answered

I've read that aluminum doesn't rust, and that it can be corroded but that it doesn't really make it look worn out/old but makes white blotches. I need a solution to make it look worn out, doesn't need to be a fast process though.

'rusting' is the oxidizing of iron. Aluminum gets an oxide coating, white, aluminum oxide. It won't get a rust colour naturally. What exactly do you mean by worn out? If you scrub it with steel wool, it'll both get scuffed up, and get tiny particles of steel on it. If you get it wet, the particles will rust, leaving a reddish tinge in the cracks.
