C wire DIY

Hello everyone :)
I just bought a pair of C wire but since they haven’t been treated well I had to substitute both temple rubbers and nose pads. While removing dirt from the metal frame i noticed the varnish was falling down quite easily in some parts and decided to remove it completely. The color underneath is a nice silver but I am thinking about making them dark carbon. Do you have any suggestions on a great solvant to remove the varnish without ruining the metal underneath and on a good product to color them ? Thanks!
