first buy several thousand dollars worth of anodizing equipment
after anodizing use bleach to pull the color and then acid to bleed the colors

You forgot the part where you remodel your house or build an outside shop with proper ventilation in which to carry out this process of using hazardous materials.

Liquid or gel bleach? I've been wondering if you could see the difference.

I wouldn't use gel bleach. I used splashes one time because I didn't have anything else. It put clear defects everywhere.

I thought I would do this in my kitchen. So a gallon of Clorox, and what kind of acid do I need? Then do I splash the Clorox on to cut the color and then wipe everything with the acid to smooth the edges between the splash and non-splashed areas?












Yes I read the other thread, that's why i mentioned the kitchen so no need for a lecture. I plan to do it in my shed away from the house.
