How to Use liver of sulfur solution to create a patina

artjewelrymag teaches you how to use a liver of sulfur solution to create a patina. First, be sure to wear protective gloves and eye gear. Be sure to perform this operation in a well-ventilated area because sulfur smells like rotten eggs. To get started, add a few small pieces of liver of sulfur to a small dish of warm water. Use a wooden stick or a small PVC pipe and stir. The temperature and the amount of time you leave the metal in the solution will affect the patina. You can dip the metal for a short period of time, see if you like it and then dip it in cold water. If you need a darker patina, repeat the process. If you are satisfied with the result, use a damp cloth to clean it.
