research on powdercoating mixes, ongoing

 

in the same way that nature does not express itself by uniform blocks of colour, why should industrial artefacts rely on colour charts? my research in powdercoating mixes aims to restore a complex surface to metallic objects, usually very uniform.

instead of merging into an other colour as paint pigments do, powdercoated paints settle on the metallic surface by electrostatics, homogeneously but without mixing, and form an aleatory pattern at a microscopic scale, ornament offered only to whom can look.
