Looking to get some titanium to be an even solid black color.
Tried torching it and got the traditional rainbow of hues and in an
area I applied extra heat I got a dirty looking coating that
started to flake off. Do I need to do it electrically and if so
does anyone have an idea of the required voltage for solid black?
Where did you get the idea you could do this? The black you have
probably seen on body jewelry is either vapor deposition (nothing
you can do yourself) or a specialty alloy that is not available to
the casual user. No, you can not anodize it to black either. Grey is
the best you can get. At very high voltages you begin to see the
titanium oxide as white flakes. ooops, you have titanium white
