    A couple weeks ago I started messing around with learning how to anodize titanium and figured I'd give it a go on a set of polished frame juliets I have. Settled on a purple blue color for the time being. The whole frame was polished at first but decided on doing polished nosebridge and polished earstems with brushed finish on the orbitals in the end. Think I'll stick with them like this for the time being. And the dots on the top of the left orbital are pinholes in the casting of the metal. Nothing I can do about them

    yeah the contrast between polished and matte, though evident, is not enough. They look awesome, but Personally would rec either the flat or the polished but not both.

    Nice Custom!

    Nice job at learning how to anodize. The color is unique and the lenses seem to suite well.

    The question is, does @zwc0442 just replicated the legendary purple juliets? If he actually did, the wow factor in his work just tripled.

    Yeah I'm working on trying to figure out how to make that particular color of purple. I need to get a set of plasma frames to mess around with. I'm pretty sure I can do that color just need to play around a bit.

    This is the purple of the originals not mine. It's a photo of another's pair on the forums. Pretty sure I can get close to this. Being able to see the color in person would make it much easier.
