Instead of cobalt nitrate, which I have to torch on, I just realized I can do an electric kiln heat patina. It turns an even, quality black in a hour at 600c. This could be useful, because right now I just can’t get the cobalt nitrate all the way down into the legs.
My final goal is an even black inside, with a golden red outside. Though, it’s mostly going to be playing until its just right.
