Mokume gane patina


#1

HI I am new to the forum, I am working on Mokume Gane but finding it
hard to find an alternative to using Baldwins Patina being in
another country is causing problems as it is $32.00 to ship it to the
Uk. Is there anyone here who could offer an alternative please? I
have heard of live rof sulphur but, i don’t want my jewellery to turn
black.I want to be able to raise the pattern so it is still shiney.

can anyone help me please?

thank you

hello, For antiquing, you might try iodine. This will darken most
precious metals including palladium. It will not affect platinum. It
works great.
