Heat-anodizing of titanium
What temperature ranges will heat-anodize titanium? Could putting complicated objects in an oven or kiln provide consistent overall color compared to electrical anodizing? I have been making necklace chains which I dunk in electrolyte + DC but often the color is inconsistent throughout the chain at higher voltages. I was thinking along the lines of getting a small toaster oven as a low cost solution, would it provide enough heat for a full color range? (500F degrees) Or am I looking at kiln temperature ranges? P.S. Any books on the subject of coloring titanium that come recommended?
