Are they premade?  If so, you could do a few things.  You could scuff it up with some sand paper or a file and use some colorant to age it - dark colours of acrylics rubbed on and rubbed off.  Permanent marker like a sharpie, or coloured waxes or patinas like rub and buff, or gilders paste.  You could also bury it inthe dirt for awhile and let it age that way too.  Then seal with sealer or I like Renaissance wax.

PVA glue with some dark brown/black pigment (very very fine pigment, makeup might be a good option). Water it down to something just a hair thicker than water and rub it in. Let dry overnight.

Try it on something you don't like that is made of similar materials first.
