Silver Black chemically oxidizes sterling silver, copper, brass, nickel and also gold filled. See our instructions at the bottom of the page for using Silver Black with gold filled metal.
How to use:
- Cover your work area with an old towel, or work on a paper plate. Have paper towels nearby. Use in a well-ventilated area.
- Wearing rubber gloves, dip a Q-tip lightly into the Silver Black. Apply a small amount for the full oxidation to take effect before swiping it again if you need a darker color. If oxidizing copper, use a very small amount and swipe very lightly.
- We DO NOT recommend dipping your entire piece of metal into the Silver Black solution. This will over oxidize and cause black flaking on the surface of the metal.
- Rinse very well with water. You can also toss your oxidized piece in a mixture of 1 cup water with 3 tablespoons Baking Soda which will neutralize any Silver Black left on your piece.
- Let the piece dry completely.
- Dispose of all application materials.
Gold filled can be oxidized using Silver Black with these extra steps:
You can use a soft steel brush to brush it on, or simply wrap a little steel wool
around the end of a Q-tip to apply. It's the introduction of the steel
that allows the chemical process to work with gold filled blanks.
You will need to pour just a tiny amount of the silver black into
the cap and use it from the cap for this project. Make sure to rinse
out the cap well when you are done, DO NOT RETURN the used SILVER BLACK with the steel wool particles back
to the bottle. It will contaminate the rest of your product.
Dab the Silver Black (with steel wool Q-Tip or soft steel brush) on the gold filled piece fully covering the area to be oxidized. Rinse the piece. Let air dry or dry with paper towel. All the areas exposed to the silver black will be darkened.
If you only want the stamped areas to remain dark, use a pro polish pad
to bring the rest of the piece back to it's shiny gold appearance.
IMPORTANT: Silver Black is a solution of 25% Hydrochloric Acid and 75% Water. Avoid any contact with skin or eyes and always wear rubber gloves and safety glasses when working with this product. Please read all enclosed safety guidelines thoroughly before use.
