Keeping it from darkening up over the subsequent days has always been my challenge. Have even taken to rubbing brass powder into highlights sometimes to lighten them back up. Frustrated enough that I do almost all ceramic sculpture these days.
I will consider using Artworks in future and will ask for Aiya!
Ive found that when using cold liver, if you dont swill it off thoroughly in clean water it will continue to darken. Dry with cold air (do not apply heat) and wax as soon as you can also stops it darkening.
