    Would love to start a official thread to see what your device looks like if you have heat treated, anodized, or done anything to customize color and make it your own. As well as How you did it, or where you got your work done.

    I remember a thread not to long ago about hydro dipping, Thought I would share a link for a DIY kit, https://www.mydipkit.com/index.html Pretty cheap, I am highly considering it.

    Well kr3wsk8er, you have inspired me. I anodized a few pieces of stainless and titanium.

    Nicely done my man, love the color for the igos. Just curious and want to specify did you heat treat/flame treat them or anodize them? Reason I ask, to my knowledge you can not anodize stainless steel.

    I have never heard of it either. It was all done with a typical propane soldering torch. Think I might wanna buy a second igo-t. Cause there are some beautiful looking colors coming out of that titanium. Some of the tips I am going to redo. It was experimental and a few could have been taken off about ten seconds earlier. Especially the green and pink tip on the igo-t. I had a solid color pattern and just barely introduced some new colors like the yellowish and copper colors.

    Well cheers my man, glad your enjoying it! As do I, its almost as if your painting it and giving it that one of one look that is sure to make heads look again anywhere you go. I have had great luck getting a uniform look and color now, by first baking any piece I want in the oven at 400 degrees for 2.5 hours, and then applying heat via stove/torch and constantly spinning said piece over the flame. Happy vaping and would love to see some more pictures from anyone!!

    Even heat in the oven....brilliant. Would make it easy to still get two tone colors too. I spun these on a drill to get such even coloring. When you start to get to higher temps tho (everything after the second set of silver titanium colors) colors start flying quick and are very touchy.
