Liver of Sulphur...
This is Pam's Boiled Egg LoS Patina'd. See the below edit.
I can't get liver of sulphur to adhere to my copper.
On my first try... chip form with hot water in a glass pan... immersed ... then tried agitating it with a tooth brush...
Decided it was dead LofS so I got the liquid form... and tried immersing it as well... still did not adhere to the copper...
I've cleaned the copper/used a scrubby on it so it's not that!
Now I just tried brushing the liquid form on and will let it sit for an hour...
What the heck is the problem?? I've never had this issue before but I'm used to silver/instant gratification!
Help me if you have any ideas! I would love to know If I'm doing something wrong.
EDIT: From Pam in Midway, GA.
This is the one I patina'd with boiled eggs, just a subtle change, only left it in the bag for a couple of hours. Maybe if I had left it longer it would have been darker.
