Re: Does anyone know what the colored finnish

Hi, Yeah Evaldart, those highly reflective "hyper finishes" as you call them always raise my suspicions as to the work itself.
Case in point: I recently saw a show of welded sculpture done by a young man whose family is in some sort of fabrication/ornamental iron business.
The welds were ground down as smooth as a babies behind, the finish on the pieces was gorgeous but the work had nothing to say. Too bad
the sculptor didn't learn as much about art as he did about welding, if he had, the pieces would have been magnificent.
Even the gallery owner, was mesmerized by those finishes.
Have a great day,
Jeff
