    Default anodised aluminium

    Hi
    I want to have a go at colouring anodised aluminium but cannot find a supplier for the metal. I bought a couple of offcuts from an ebay shop but they're not in great condition and are not taking the dyes very well. Can anybody help me with a supplier or any other useful related info.

    Thanks

    I've checked and it does seem to be ready coloured unfortunately.

    Thanks Kwant. I've just checked out Carole's aluminium jewellery which has just made me even more determined to work it all out!

    I didnt know you can colour anodised aluminium once it has been sealed ? I thought you had to dye raw metal when it had been freshly anodised straight from one pot to the other then boil it to seal in the colour .But I could be wrong ?
    I know you can get a nice colours in titanium but with a slightly different process
