My recent obsession= Making Jewelry!
My even more recent obsession= Antiquing...
I love this solution because it has turns shiny gold into a aged brown. It's fun and easy to do, just make sure you use plastic containers!
Step 1: Place item in bath of solution and leave in until desired color is reached.
Step 2: Remove from solution and place in a container of water to stop process. I use a plastic fork to do this and not my hand.
Step 3: Use steel wool or an SOS pad under running water to remove most of the finish and create highlights. Dry on paper towel.
