Hello darkness, my old friend…

My 2 oz. bottle of Outers gun blue arrived yesterday. During my research on adding patina to my metal jewelry, gun blue was recommended over liver of sulfur for brass, copper and bronze (less smell, easier disposal). 

The patina for sterling silver was “uneven,” particularly after being buffed with 0000 steel wool, but I was curious (and bored) and decided to give it a shot. I love the slightly industrial effect and I appreciate how much it diguises the join where the wire is soldered together.
