Best way to "age" leather ammo belt?

Does any one have any good techniques for adding an "aged" look to leather?
I thought of a few things to do, but I would like to hear if anyone out there has any tips.

As you can see, my belt just looks a bit to new. ;)

Use a fine grit sandpaper to add some weathering & ligtly sand raised areas & edges. It will simulate natural wear nicely. Just check out this Jango belt that I just recently finished.

I took mine outside and rubbed them on some rocks. I actually liked the results better that the sandpaper effect. They also got a little dirty which adds to the "aged effect a little.

Klinsek and Yavin, welcome to the boards, in case I forgot it. Use either both ideas or a combination of both.
