Quoted from Koos:

And another noob question here:
I see you using different techniques like painting, powdercoating and etching.
What’s etching? Sometimes you still paint over it afterwards. Why not paint straight on the material?

Metal needs to be etched with an etching primer first or paints may not adhere properly and eventually peel off.

The dragon wings alone show a level of artisan craft that frankly can't be taught, only built over many years. Super impressed with that work. Also even more impressive to know that when successful, work like that looks more original/intentional than repros, and thus may be unnoticed by client! The better the work, the more it seems like it's intended from factory.

Integrity is making the right decisions even when no one is watching.

Quoted from High_End_Pins:

Yeah that is what I should do but I just don’t have time to deal with it.
Outing someone publicly rarely goes well for anyone involved from what I have seen unless it is something really substantial.
I have had some serious shit happen to me over my 45 years so some lousy powder coating doesn’t even register on the anger meter

When you polish out the defects, what's your normal process? An orbital polisher with various polishing compounds? Or do you wet sand with high grits?

These simple little details I bet most would not think of... the perfectionism is impressive. Thanks for sharing you're skills and techniques. Doubt I will ever restore a pin but these threads make me want to try.

I remember thinking I wouldn’t ever do it. LOL. Oh well, can’t close that door now.
