When I first heard the phrase “Liver of Sulfur” it sounded scary and the process sounded intimidating, but it really is neither.
These earring show the difference a patina & polish can make. Some folks prefer a bright shiny look, it’s a matter of preference
Whatever you do, don’t ignore my warning in the video to pretest your beads to see how they’ll react the with patina solution. If you look carefully at the pink & silver earrings above, you’ll notice that the LOS actually removed some of the coating off my pearls. Boo, hiss.
That being said, those were rather cheap beads and it’s the first time I’ve ever had any beads react badly to liver of sulfur.
You can use your choice of metal polish to shine up the high points, but I think Pro-Polish Pads are especially easy and convenient, as they have the polishing compound built right into the pads.
Enjoy the video and happy creating!
