I was wondering if anyone else had experienced some difficulty
getting an even patina on Argentium Silver. I have tried several
times using both (separately) Jax Black & Liver of Sulphur
concentrated gel. What seems to happen is that the patina looks
solid. I put it into the ultrasonic and then when I take it out,
there are bare patches almost as if it’s peeled off.
I was under the impression that once the patina had been set that it
was standard practice to put it into the ultrasonic. Maybe that is
the problem in itself, although I have seen colleagues do this with
regular silver/gold and not have the same problem.
I know that if done properly Argentium does patina quite well, I’m
just not getting those consistent types of results right now. Any
suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
