Maid-O-Metal Liver of Sulpher
By Laurie T
Comments about St. Louis Crafts Liver of Sulphur:
I use LOS to oxidize copper. This product is expensive (except shipping). It is ready to use and lasts a long time! I have tried a "New" gel product that is out on the market and it is too strong. It took my coloring off the metal! This is LOS it does smell like rotten eggs, so wear a resperator if the smell bothers you!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Has no effect on tight wire weaves
For some odd reason, this product will not oxidize any of the tight wire weaves I do. It isn't the copper wire because the same wire will oxidize if not weaved. I have left pieces in the solution for more than an hour just to see if it simply takes longer, but that doesn't work either. I gave the product 2 stars, but only because it does work on non wire weaved jewelry.See photo
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Merchant response: Thank you for your review. Once the wire has been woven, the copper will need to be thoroughly cleaned to remove any oils that have transferred from your hands, as these will prevent the Liver of Sulphur from reacting with the metal. If we can be of further assistance with this project, we hope you'll consider reaching out to our Product Information Team at 1-800-933-2542 (8am-5:30pm CST M-F) or firstname.lastname@example.org. We'll be happy to assist you!

"I ould definitely buy this product again"

The directions were very clear and concise. The results were immediate.
Works great on silver patina
from exeter, ca
Liver of Sulfur
Very good result in apply patina to brass. Unfortunately, The Blick store I went to does not stock it and the shipping costs more then a bottle of Sulfur itself.
liver of sulphur is liver of sulphur but
Liver of sulphur comes in several forms and prices. I like this liquid form and of course the best prices are at Blick along with their great service. I use this product to age copper tooling. Of course the odor of sulphur is terrible no matter where you purchase.

Long lasting good value
from Los Angeles
I bought a bottle of this about 8 years ago, and I'm just reaching the end of it. I've used it for Silver, Copper and Bronze, and have produced good patina's. It's exceptionally good value,(compared to LOS in chunk form in a can) and doesn't seem to deteriorate with time (as the chunk stuff does) The bottle gets a bit crusty though. For the first reviewer, Liver of sulfur never works on Brass, this one doesn't work any differently than the other Liver of Sulfur.
Did NOT Work For Me
from St. Paul, MN.
I bought this Maid o' Metal liver of sulphur in person at the Dick Blick store in Roseville. I asked the Dick Blick employee if it would work for brass and he said (very convincingly) "YES!"He was wrong. It didn't work on brass. I was so disappointed as I had read a lot of tutorials online on how to antique raw brass for jewelry pieces and the most common method was to use Liver of Sulphur! I don't know what Maid o' Metal puts in their liquid Liver of Sulphur, because it was completely ineffective! And the Dick Blick employee was completely uninformed! That's $$ down the drain... :-(
