Does anyone have a recipe/procedure for using manganese phosphate for darkening of the 1080 in Damascus?
Cajun? More like espresso that has been allowed to evaporate for while from what i have been told. I have heard of guys using an entire small jar of Nescafe for one jar of "etchant" coffee.Make the instant coffee pretty strong, more like cajun coffee, and do use distilled water to be sure there are no contaminants in the water.
It's Alabama Damascus. I've used a lot of it and it's always good stuff.Randy, that's a good etch, and the Damascus pattern looks really good. Did you make the Damascus? I've always loved a good spalted wood.
