Haven't tried liver of sulphur yet. Been experimenting first with more common household products, hoping for a simpler solution.
For a supernatural chiller mixing magic (prestidigitation, legerdemain) with Magic (occultism, mysticism), check out my novel MAGIC: AN OCCULT THRILLER at http://www.amazon.com/Magic-Occult-Thriller-Reed-Hall/dp/1453874836

Liver of Sulphur gives the most authentic patina.

If you want to do a real accurate job then LoS mixed with vaseline and applied with a Q Tip or cocktail stick is very effective - a bit of heat speeds up the patina (Like a bulb)

Do you find the Vaseline helps to "cure" the finish?

Not that I’ve noticed, it may do a bit. Mostly though, it’s about control - allows very precise areas to be done, and also stops run. The amount of patina can be controlled with heat too
