    Or at least that's what it was gonna say, but I messed up the lettering. :(

    I just put up a page on FB to host a gallery of the patinas I've been doing, for now. If you want to check it out go to FB and search for "Dready's Mod Spa". Hope to see a few of you there :) Or just click below:

    Right. I should have been more clear - How about some sort of finishing technique for stainless steel?

    I've tried a little torching and alcohol ink but haven't been remotely happy with the results.

    Thanks for your opinion. I saw some videos for those applications and I was not to impressed, but thought it might just be a one off.

    I've seen a ton of pics of alcohol inking, and only one was great. Don't know how they did it, it almost looked like ceramics glazed in a kiln.

    LOL...sort of. Initially, I did not sand enough, so it was vinegar and mustard to start. Then I washed and did a light sand and applied, vinegar, mustard and a bit of salt. Learning from my mistakes!

    Those look really nice! How do you get the different colors? I would love to have one in purple.

    Really like how this one came out. A little more organic than most of the others IMO.
