Please help me! I am learning the trade and have come across a problem. I want to darken an area and have some Pariser Oxide, but do not know how to apply it. Perhaps there is another method which is better?
With many thanks!
Pariser Oxide is an English product and I suspect it is much like what we use here in the U.S.
I use a small painters brush to apply it to the silver. If I want darker application I might sometimes spread the application with and iron rod. The iron galvanically applies a copper coating which the Oxide darkens. This technique allows you to darken some recess of gold work.
