  • Antiquing and soldering

    I bought some antiquing solution from a shop. They didnt have liver of sulphur! Should i be antiquing the copper before i solder anything to it? Or will it not work as the copper surface will be too dirty? What would happen to any silver that comes into contact with the solution? Mind its a copper and brass antiquing solution not silver.

    Any soldering surface needs to be clean, so use the solution once you've soldered

        If it's possible, you could "very carefully" put the solution on with a fine paintbrush.

        If it's a brass/copper solution, it might not even "attach" itself to the silver and just rub off or something? Best thing to do is test on a scrap piece.
