Rated 3 out of 5 by from Minimal Reaction Pewter I tried this on pewter to give it a blackened antique look. I soaked the entire piece for 24 hours, but didn't get much blackening. It did turn the silver pewter and slightly darker color with a very light bronze tint, but not much else. I think it might be because pewter is so resistant to corrosion that patina solutions just don't work well on this metal. It's probably good for other metals that it mentions on the packaging, but if you want to use it on pewter you may be a bit disappointed with the result. Also, be aware that this stuff has a strong sulfur odor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Directions they don't tell you. Patina works great This product WORKS - but- you must use hot water (as a silversmith i ran out of my liver of sulfur and ran out to michaels to grab this as a last minute rush job) Works great, but i used the liver of sulfur instructions for silversmiths. Step 1: use either glass or plastic container, fill with hot water (not boiling) i just use the small setting from my keurig coffee machine (1 cup) Step 2: place items you want patina'd in the water (wear gloves, take a stir stick (or spoon) have BAKING SODA with you on hand. Step 3: Take this OUTSIDE unless you want your house smelling like rotten eggs the rest of the day Step 4: Add 1 teaspoon on this patina solution to the water and metal (eg silver or copper) and stir wearing gloves. Your pieces will start to turn black nearly immediately. Depending how dark you want it, leave in mixture 30 seconds - 5 minutes. Step 5: when you are happy with colour ADD BAKING SODA to the water/patina mix. This neutralizes the patina. It will bubble and then diffuse. Once it settles i dilute with more water then dump. You can also leave mixture until it turns CLEAR without baking soda if you wish, can take a few days, this is then neutralized as well and you can dump down drain or backyard. Step 6: now either leave your pieces black or use a light sand paper to brush away the tarnish so you can see the details better if you have designs in your work. Step 7: SEAL piece with protectaclear or renaissance wax. =)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Patina effect was ok Put several metal items in the solution. Since there was no indication how long to leave in had to check several times. Some of the metal items did change, some did not. Left in solution for over 1 hr. Odor was very strong, recommend doing outside.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Meh. Unfortunately, this product did not work well for me whatsoever for sterling or silver solder. My pieces were barely oxidated, even after an hour in the solution. Liver of Sulphur is where it’s at.
