I'm stuck for what to call my latest pink aluminum bangle....
The design actually happened by accident but I like it!
You see the silver lines - like the "glint" bangles, crossing at right angles? They were a color - a darker shade of pink - before I sealed it. But the dye I used didn't get into the pores of the surface of the aluminum. When you anodize the aluminum, it opens pores on the surface and then dyes with small particle size can get in. Then when you seal the metal, the pores close and the dye stays and nothing else gets in. The resultant surface layer is also stronger than before.
So the dark pink didn't work, probably because its particle size was too large to get in the pores, and left the silver color of the aluminum showing through.
Do you have any ideas for a name?
