"Liver of sulfur for "antique" mirror manufacturing"



2004

I have been looking for a formula that will oxidize mirror to produce antique mirror. We pour the silver nitrate solution on the glass, and spray sodium hydroxide 1% carefully on the dry silver nitrate to get an antique effect.

The problem with this is that the solution is quite corrosive and difficult to control. I want to use liver of sulfur, in liquid solution and spray that.

1. does anyone know how to produce liver of sulfur?

2. can anyone suggest what concentration and how we might spray the solution on

3. would it be better to spray the solution on the wet or dry silver nitrate?

Hi, Evin. I don't know whether Liver of Sulphur [affil. link to info/product on Amazon] will do what you wish, but it is readily available by following the underlined link, and it's so inexpensive that you probably don't need to formulate it yourself. Good luck.
