Blackening of white metal


(2001)

I want to blacken white metal. Is there any chemical to blacken it?

If you are talking about white metal as in pewter that is mostly tin there is a chemical oxidising process that is made up with nitric acid 5% by volume and copper sulphate 1/3 oz/gal (oz av & US gallon. Parts are simply immersed until the darkness required is achieved then rinsed and dried.
