This is absolutely stunning!!
Congrats Team CPK on another winning design!!!!
I usually have used a small propane torch as it doesn't get so hot so fast and you can heat it evenly and watch the color close. Best to practice to see what it takes to get the color you want. bronzes and golds come early purples and blues take more and greens after those if my memory serves right. A normal propane torch worked but I preferred the smaller one for fasteners.
I clean the metal off with acetone first to get an even color.
I hear some say use ice water to cool but I've never done that myself. But you may have to do it a couple times practicing to find when you get the color you want.
Color change isn't just one and done right? Like after heating and cooling, can you still go back after to heat/color it further?
You suck Matty! I am on my cell, on a trail in the middle of nowhere with one bar and still beat your ass.
