Where are the directions for applying the patina? Only see the list of ingredients.

This is a nice technique. If you'd like to quickly patina your sterling, you can rub it with an onion. The combination of the sulfur and acids in the onion form lead sulfide with the lead in the sterling giving it a nicely "antiqued" look.

I love these euphemisms. It's a great excuse not to polish the silver for the in-laws! :-)
