    I heated the parts to about 500 degrees F dipped in linseed oil let dry hour or so then reheated to 500 F for about 30 minutes[until I liked the color

    Do you have a kiln or oven? Or did you do this in a furnace?

    I used a propane torch on an earlier attempt worked ok but slow,on these I have a piece of 10" pipe about 18" tall domed on top and a hinged door on front,set on a gas burner for a turkey fryer,I can quickly get a lot of pieces to 500+degrees .You could easily do this in oven or even toaster oven
