    Titanium - Anodized and Plain

    I got an e-mail that the TI18316NoColor was in stock, but when I could check 30 minutes later on the website it was sold out. Did I blink and miss it?

    I did the scale. I think the final count was around 6150 scales. My wife did the fabric costuming pieces. And the other metal pieces are LARP/cosplay pieces that we bought separately.

    Matte vs. Shiny Titanium

    Linked to a photo, I don't know how well you can see the difference, but it's definitely noticeable in person. https://imgur.com/a/KPjnJW2

    Matte vs. Shiny Titanium

    This is probably my own fault, I started a titanium project in 2005 and just recently got to the point where I realized I did not order enough of the rings to finish it. The original order was Ti 18ga 3/16" ID rings, I recently put in an order for more rings and got them in today. When I'm comparing them to my 14-year-old rings, they have considerably more shine. I remembered the Ti rings had a more matte finish to them, but I don't really know. Again, I'm blaming myself that I waited so long between orders, I'm looking for what I can do to get them to match without starting over with the shinier rings. Did the old rings tarnish, will it polish out? Can I polish the rings to match?
