| Step 1 |
Start with a piece of silver that has impressions of letters or designs.
| Step 2 |
Mix a solution of liver of sulphur (1 tbs. of liquid liver of sulphur to 1 c. of warm water) in a bowl.
| Step 3 |
Use a cotton swab to brush the solution onto the silver.
| Step 4 |
As the solution dries, the liver of sulphur will begin to react with the silver turning it a dark brown.
| Step 5 |
Once the silver has been antiqued, rinse the silver with cold water. Dry completely. Then polish the silver with a Pro Polish Pad.
| Step 6 |
The antiquing will stay in the impressions in the silver, allowing the lettering or design to stand out.
| Step 7 |
As an alternative to using liver of sulphur to antique the silver, you can use a permanent marker.
| Step 8 |
With the permanent marker, fill in the area with the stamped impressions.
| Step 9 |
Once the ink is completely dry, use a Pro Polish Pad to polish the silver. The ink will stay in the impressions in the silver, allowing the lettering or design to stand out.
