Spinetic Spinners ServicesSpinetic now offers additional services such as custom finishes and shipping fowarding.
It’s always wise to customize!
Spinetic’s workshop can provide you with ways to make your spinner customized to your liking. Below is a short explaination of each of the different finishes we can provide on our metal spinners.
Tumbling, also known as stonewashing, is the process of smoothing and burnish a rough surface. Our exact method of tumbling helps remove and sharp edges and gives the spinner an overall matte finish to it. The closest appearance we can relate the finish to is a galvanized finish.
Polishing also helps smooth out a rough surface and gives the spinner a beautiful finish but does differ to tumbling in a few ways. Polishing is done with a slightly abbrasive compound vs physical media so the hard edges or corners of your spinner will not be effected the same as tumbling would. In addition a polished finish will be very reflective and shiny. A polish finish is not permanent on certain metals such as brass and copper. Over time these metals will loose their shiny apperance and oxidize. To remove the oxidazation a metal polishing compound such as Mothers® Mag & Aluminum Polish, available at most hardware stores, is needed.
Our heat treatment finish is the process of heating up the metal to a specific temperature to achieve a certain color. The process, also known as tempering, builds up a layer of oxization that causes an interference with light. This finish is only offered only on stainless steel and titanium. The colors that can be produced from this method range from gold, blue, and purple. We like to call this treatment the industrial/steampunk style of finishing.
Anodizing is similar to heat treatment in terms of building up a layer of oxidization to modify the color of a spinner, however it is not done with heat. Anodizing instead uses electricity to achieve a certain color. As the voltage is increased so is the thickness of the oxidization layer and thus changing the color. While anodizing is also used for aluminum, that process uses dyes and we can not offer that at our current facility. Anodizing is available on any titanium spinners in a variety of colors ranging from gold, blue, green, purple, and pink.
