I've seen a lot of people using WD-40 or silicone lube to darken their pieces but I recently found out that basically any cooking oil will work just as well. I recommend doing it this way since it is a lot cheaper and more accesable.

The pieces in this picture were darkened with olive oil.

Have you tried car dashboard wax polish ? I think it would do the better job and not attract dirt too. Friction is also reduced.
