This finish leaves all finalizing options up to the customer; Never Blue will knock any slag off from CNC cuts, but any surface scratches, protective pickled coating, rust, etc., will not be addressed, and the prices will reflect the customer choosing to finish the item his or herself.
Powder Coat Options
Never Blue Metalworks offers many items with a powder coated finish, which is a baked-on, permanent finish, a durable one that will last a lifetime vs a traditional paint method. In order to ensure a great paint job, Never Blue takes every step to prep, clean and wrap each piece before it heads off to powder coating, where we work with another local business, BSM Coatings (Mike Brown), to provide a great product with a great finish at a great price. Please be aware that we offer powder coat colors in a limited option, sometimes dependent upon piece, so please take note when ordering as to the finish options. If a custom or different powder coat option is desired, Never Blue will coordinate with Mike at BSM to get your piece to them, where from there the customer’s finish option, shipping, and payment for such services will be handled between the customer and BSM. Never Blue will require payment for the base piece and any prep; otherwise offered powder coat selections will be handled solely by Never Blue Metalworks.
Rust, rust, moreRust
This choice means what it says: the item itself and/or the components that comprises it will be rusty, aged, painted, etc.—in their as-close-to-original-picked state. Never Blue Metalworks will do what it takes to create the item desired, leaving the finish as-is upon completion, so no coatings will be applied, which allows the item to continue rusting. Please note some items will be rustier than others.
Brushed Steel Clean with Spray Can Clear Coat
Never Blue Metalworks cleans the item by hand with a wire brush wheel on a grinder, working to clean up weld marks from construction; however, some areas cannot be reached due to a grinding wheel’s limitations, and Never Blue Metalworks has artistic control on leaving any original patina, paint, etc., before placing a spray can, enamel-clearcoat finish on the item, and the customer acknowledges that this elected type of finish is neither permanent nor guarantees any rusting, especially if the item purchased is placed outside.
