    Art teachers will tell their students that there is no such color as true black. Everything has a pigment or is a combination of dark colored pigments.

    Sometimes it's dark brown, or I guess in your case... Blue. heh

    Blueing is actually pretty fun to do as well. My son was pretty amazed at how quickly the metal turns color.

    Glad it worked out for you!
