Clock refinishing

Post by Tbird » Tue Aug 20, 2019 1:32 pm

I have a Phinney Walker Brass clock. It runs great, but the slivering is all gone. The face is brass. The numbers and lines could use a little touch up with the black wax. Here’s my question. Have you used/ done any of the slivering face before? Results? which kit did you use?
Thanks guys

If it’s actually brass .. polish the brass first. Then make a paste of silver nitrate, calcium carbonate and either potassium cyanide or sodium thiosulfate. Rub this onto the brass and it will deposit pure silver.
