    The Metal Snake

    An anvil would really help with this. I had to use a solid aluminum block instead, which took longer.

    he said he used metal containers, those plastic ones were just as an example to display the liquids.

    How to colour steel with HEAT

    A few months ago i turned a nail blue (didn't use the quenching process, as I hadn't seen these instructions at the time) and the color seems to be very visible in daylight, I think because of the color temperature.

    I have a plain stainless steel necklace that I plan on bluing. I'm just wondering if the metal clasp components or links may break due to heating. (penny for scale)It would probably be heated anywhere from 490-600 degrees for a spectrum of the different colors. it was only 8 bucks but I'd rather not break it.
