Home brew can sometimes be cheaper, but you have zero tech services help when the solution does not work quite right.

I would use a proprietary until you get some experience with it.

At internet archive website you can download old book on metal coloring by Arthur Hiorns-old but very good book with chapter on coloring of tin and pewter.
Hope it helps and good luck!
