Hi Guys, Where can I get burnishing fluid for brass/photo etch in South Africa. Pegasys Hobbies stock the one below, but at R200 for a 100ml, it's a bit rough.

"Burnishing agent for photo etch parts and brass barrels. Instant blackening for turned brass barrels and photo etch within about 3-5 minutes. Photo etch Burnishing Fluid also blackens tin solder used for soldering Photo-etch for a uniform effect."

Bloody crazy price for what it is!

There is an art shop in Pretoria called Jimnettes that sells similar stuff used in the leaded glass industry/hobby. Best to go to their physical store, as the online shop don't show 1% of what they have. (ps. go with lots of cash!)

It is called Black Patina

Bought about a year ago for less than R10 for 50ml.

I have blackened brass, copper and some other metals successfully with it. Best to thin it with water, minimum 1/1 ratio.
