Blue Tactical Fishes

Another progress in anodizing titanium with use of voltage. Two tactical fishes - beadblasted, stonewashed and anodized for blue color in 30V. It turned out that not a power supply, but a good quality, clean electrolyte is the most important thing to get good results with anodizing. 
After about two years of tests I think I finally know how to do this! :D

More Vault Openers

Some time ago I have added to my workshop a new 0-120VDC power supply. Finally I should be able to give some fancy colors to my titanium stuff! 
Anyway I have also learned  that it is not easy to get good results on anodizing without some chemistry skills. Here is the result of one of my first successful tests - violet Vault Opener.
And some other pictures just for the record...



Violet one is AVAILABLE
