      Looking for a recipe for Blacken-it

      Has anyone made their own Chemical Blackener?  I've had good luck with Blacken-it and Jax but wonder if there is a cheaper DIY solution (pun intended).  I did find someone using Copper Sulfate crystals and a bit of sulfuric acid.

      Here is a rather in-depth article from 2007 - CHEMICALLY BLACKENING BRASS

       

      It looks well researched and may be of use to you.  As I still have a relatively full bottle of Blacken-It I have not needed to seek out a replacement yet.
