Oil Paste will indeed work for sterling silver, though it is recommend to use Overlay Paste instead. Overlay Paste is water-soluble making it easier to clean from tools and it doesn't need its own diluents like Oil Paste does. Another benefit is that Overlay Paste can be fired in a kiln at 1200 degrees Fahrenheit (Oil Paste needs a minimum of 1472 degrees Fahrenheit) which will help the sterling from oxidizing and becoming brittle.
