caswell sells a dichromate solution for coloring carbs etc. I've used it works great

i used the alodine but I have not got the right color
Do you wash the solution off after you dip it or do you let it air dry when you bring it out of the solution?
I tryed it for 5 hours and do not have the right color?
any suggestions
