Hi there --
I experimented with LOS a couple of weekends ago and dipped some SS
french hooks. I try everything out before selling something new. I
have worn them every day for a week and an half now. (My ears are
really sensitive and I can wear only gold or silver.) I can say with
great joy that I've had no reactions and the color has stayed on the
The three things I can recommend are:
Wash them well with water.
Let them dry at least 3 hours after dipping.
Seal them with wax.
Good luck with your project,
