Where to get Nitric Acid


#1

I’m new to the group and so far impressed with the quick turn
over on resposes that people have. So Please, be quick it’s the
thirteenth hour on this project and I already late–no one else
probably does this.

I was requested to make a mokume ring for a ring and what I’ve
found is nirtic acid is recomended for etching the surface to
give the diferent colors more distinction. A satin finish
helps, but…

I also have a chunk of iron meteorite(sic?) and once I’ve heated
it up I’m afraid that I’ll ruin the nice texture. But I know the
texture or finish can be re-applied, or etched with nitric acid.

These are my problems and maybe someone out there has a
solution-no pun intended-Thanks Calvin

Calvin,

Good source for all sorts of chemistry is Bryant Labs, 1101 5th,
Berkeley, CA 94710 Phone 415-526-3141. Only problem is
shipping nitric or most any acid costs an extra fee. I get my
patination chemistry from these folks (one of their specalities).
