You need to include some important information.

Firstly, what is the metal you wish to oxidize.

Secondly, what color do you wish to oxidize it to. Are you going to relieve it afterwards for an antique finish. What type of sealing material are you going to use: polymer, lacquer, wax, etc. Are you working with assembled zippers or sliders and/or tapes.

All this information is important to know for anyone wishing to give you some advise. If you want some formulas for non proprietary oxidizing baths, refer to the Metal Finishing Guide Book, published by Metal Finishing Magazine. It need not be a current issue, most of the formulations in this section have not changed in over 20 years.
