    Paint finish with Fillet brazing?

    Does anyone have any idea how the paint finish is done as in the Curtis bikes photo below? Are the brazes masked up or something? I think this looks absolutely stunning.

    Really? Do you think the tubing is just hand sanded then? I have sand blasted steel plate before and it does go a similar colour, but if you catch the braze it takes all the bright colour from it?

    I might have to experiment with it on my current build as I love this look.

    Drop an email to Curtis as they are only a few miles away from me and are very helpful. If not PM me and I will get in touch as I have a few contacts who knows the owner well.
