Default How do you anodize?

I have some aluminum parts that I took off the factory color and want to make different colors. How is the process carried out?

It's expensive, very dangerous to do at home.

You can get kits for home use. I'm not endorsing them, just saying they're available. Not cheap either.

There was an article about it on an OLD paintball site called warpig.com
Wasn't all that complicated. Some acids, electric current, rit dye. Don't know if that site is still up or not as I haven't even tried to get on it in about 8 or 9 yrs.
