Midas liver of sulfur helps you achieve an eye-catching contrast on your jewelry designs; against a bright or matte finish on jewelry metals, the dark patina highlights details and emphasizes contours. Liver of sulfur is one of the most effective oxidizers for silver and copper and works best producing a smooth, black finish, when either it (or the workpiece) is hot. After oxidizing, protect the finish by sealing the jewelry piece using Renaissance wax, lacquer or other sealant.
• Liquid liver of sulfur is sensitive to light and should never be left in direct sunlight; store in a cool, dark place. Once opened, it has a limited shelf life. Keeping the container tightly sealed when not in use helps lengthen the shelf life (up to six months). If you find that you aren't using it within this time period, you may prefer either the gel or dry concentrate products, which allow you to mix only what you need as you need it.
