Re: Does anyone know what the colored finnish

You can achieve some what the type of effect with the transparent with the spray auto tinted clears. This seems to be the new choice for sockets and wrenches,coming from the far east.It is a lacquer type paint with a clear coating over it. Enclosed are a number of pictures I took for a posted thread on another forum on the coating.The coating is easily damaged even with the clear coat. The sockets are not highly polished stainless, but you get the idea. Harbor Fright has numerous examples they are selling.

Here is the canned version http://www.caswellplating.com/vht/du...metalcast.html

They also have a transparent powder coating that is stronger for the wear.
For the info on the powder coat.
