You should get Reactive Metals’ catalog and their anodizing pamphlet.
This is where I started and learned most of what I needed to know to
start anodizing. The Metalsmith Papers put out by SNAG also has a
chapter about reactive metals and I seem to remember Tim McCreight’s
book “The Complete Metalsmith” has a section on anodizing.
If it was my article that caused you grief I’m sorry. When I was
writing it I couldn’t decide how much to include. There is
a fine line between being informative and being pedantic.
