CHEMISTRY QUESTION** I'm trying to understand how to stop the oxidisation of silver on glass using a bleach. I apply the silver nitrate solution on the glass and then use the bleach to oxidise it to create a black effect. The problem is I want to be

Hi. You just need to remove the contact with the two component. You can rinse it with water. If you want a better control of the reaction, you can do it in the cold (cold temperature slow down oxidation reaction a lot). You should also be able to make oxidation with electrolysis in a more controled manner (putting the silver on the positive anode), never tested it for finish effect but it is to try.
