My intention was to give a feeling of propeller movement. Your Yin-Yang interpretation is an added dimension; I guess others will have different impressions.

Quote from: jumbojak on January 15, 2019, 04:29:39 AMDo you do any anodizing at your facility? I bet you could get something close to brass in color with an interesting texture too.
Quote from: Icarus on January 26, 2019, 11:22:27 PMHermes as our resident chem wizard, you will know that stripping the anodized surface is neither difficult, nor costly. Actually I have anodized a gazillion small pieces and dyed them in various colors colours. Matter of fact I still have a substantial rectifier that I had used for that purpose. I need that power supply like I need a paper ass but what if I want to anodize some boat parts or something one of these days.
Quote from: jumbojak on January 27, 2019, 04:27:17 AMI know a cabinet maker who took a job fixing an antique China cabinet that had been destroyed by a falling tree in a hurricane. The tree fell through the house and smashed the cabinet in two. Ralph repaired the cabinet, too well at first. It looked practically brand new. To remedy this he and his apprentice beat the cabinet with chains and burned it with cigarettes to replicate the original worn look. Just an idea to develop a patina.
