I have seen this in the gallery and I am wondering if the aluminum is treated to make it black? Is it some sort of chemical blacking or bluing like with guns and what people do with silver? Or is it something that is coated on?

Like John said, it is black trophy aluminum. Comes coated with a layer of plastic that you peel and pour. Doesn't get much easier for collodion work.

Get it here... Go for number 108...
