Tumble Coating 3D Prints – Part 4

Stainless steel can work too, and creates a much brighter look, but it takes much longer.  This one ran for a couple of days and the coating isn’t as even as the others I’ve tried.  I also used larger/longer screws, which I don’t think worked as well as the 1.25″ deck screws.


Dacrotized screws result in a less glossy, middle gray finish that looks a bit more like paint and less like metal, but it only works until the coating is used up.  Tumble it longer than a few hours and it will start to revert to the darker steel look.
