Fine and sterling silver mordants


#1

Hello everyone,

I was wondering if anyone has input on mordants? I prefer less
intense ones along the line of ferric chloride rather than nitric,
if possible. Does ferric chloride work on sterling, or only copper?
Thanks you for your help,

Margaret

Ferric Chloride doesn’t work with silver. But Ferric Nitrate does.
It’s the preferred acid mordant for silvers, so far as I know.
