    Default Matt finish on silver.

    Good morning all. I saw a super pair of earrings yesterday which were matt silver with a polished “tear” of silver soldered onto each one. Terrible description, sorry! How do you get the matt finish please.

    You can either use a brass brush which although matt is a bit shiny for me. I found the sort of plastic Brillo pad mops quite unforgiving if not used carefully. I use these https://www.cooksongold.com/Precious...ads&channel=uk and find I can get the finish I want especially as the pads start to wear down to a gentler finish

    They are supposed to be for clay but I find them really useful. There are 3 grades and one is quite rough but it depends what finish you want.
    I’ve remembered the name of the Brillo mops. Scotchbrite but if you pressed to hard you could do all sorts of damage and only really good for flat areas. I tear little pieces of the sponge off and use tweezers to get them into awkward areas if necessary
