    Your'e right Bee.

    I can cope with bad egg smells - I am used to those ! Its the slightly more toxic and flammable ways of oxidising I want to avoid, if poss.

    I've used household bleach to oxidse before, it seems to work pretty quickly (about 20mins for a dark black colour) and you can paint it on or just dunk it.

    Then I give it a buff with Rennaisance wax to hold the colour.

    That's interesting, so Rennaisance wax holds colour - is it a fixing type of wax then, or does it have other jewellery associated uses too ?

    Very unusual design BTW Hannah!

    Loving that ring Hannah!

    Jules - Renaissance wax is great for protecting pieces and for helping keep oxidised colour at your preferred stage.

    Ah ha - thanks for that George So I just put some RW on my copper to make sure it doesn't get the green tinge and it will keep it that way?

    under E.U. hallmarking laws, eggs used in the colourisation of jewellery must be free range, and of class A, medium, or large for britania silver.

    You may be required to send a till reciept, in with the assay paperwork.
