The hot blues they use get more of a black shade i believe they use hot blue 304 stainless steel maybee 240 to 400 grit polish. For cold I have only seen a blueish tinge come out of cold blueing. To totaly recreate original finish i believe you will need to hot blue unless there is a new product that uses a fancy catalist to get the color desired. good luck

I have used a product called Blue Wonder and had about a 40% job when finished. Some areas it takes good and some it don't.
