I am a in the early stages of creating a jewelry business and finding that I have a lot to learn, which is great.
I’ve done beading and fimo clay projects as a hobby for many years and am branching into some work with metal.
I purchased brass chain online from two different sources and it didn’t look red in the photos, although it really looks red in person.
I have other brass components in varying shades of oxidation, but all on the gold side.
I was planning to use the chain with these components and I don’t think they look very good together.
I purchased some liver of sulfur and black patina to use with some etched pieces I have created.
Could I use the liver of sulfur on the chain? Is there another way to tone down the red?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
