    I'd love to see how this turns out on a $35 piece of Chinese junk!

    Mine? They are both from 1700 Fabricators one is a Sputnik and the other a Weapon. They are the best tips I've used. I've got 2 new ones coming... a Sputnik-M which is a shorter version of the first one I posted.

    I've bought all of mine from a guy named Jacob on fb. PM me if you want his contact info.

    no, Stainless doesn't patina like brass & copper, Torching is the best way to change its color.

    That mod in the op looks amazing.. I'm thinking like a vinegar rub down followed by a Slightly damp sea sponge over to randomly dilute the Vinegar. Much like doing a Faux finish with paint..

    I guessing the op mod maker had a lot of experience and trial and error to know how to make it look like that counter top.. Highly skilled because that's almost a perfect match.
