So the kind of thing I find myself doing in my spare time is trying to patinate silver plate using eggs.
I wanted to give the silver plated cuff link settings below a nice dark patina, so decided to test out this fangled egg theory.
The only thing you really need to know is that I thought I had to use raw egg yolks instead of cooked ones.
The cuff links are still in the bag with the yolks after 4 days. They are just sitting on the kitchen counter, waiting. I daren’t take them out.
Next time, when I have more eggs, I’m going to follow the method on e-how, here. Failing that, there’s always Liver of Sulphur, which is significantly less egg-involving. Hoorah.
