Nickel/Silver Coloring


I am a builder of custom fly fishing rods that have all nickel/silver hardware. How can I get some color into the nickel/silver? What colors with what technique? Thanks

- Sanford, ME. USA


I would look into tinted electrophoretic coatings if I were you, I think. They are very durable and would give the shiny nickel or silver a nice translucent tint in whatever shade you like.

Of course, you could also lacquer, powder coat, or plate them--it's a pretty broad question.
