Only the flat surfaces are polished.
The rest is a blasted finish, it's more noticeable as being blasted in real life.

Very nice! What colours are you able to do?

How did you remove the original colour?

And the important question, do they look like decent quality?

Red, yellow, gold, blue, turquoise, XTR grey, black, Team Green, orange.
Hydrofluoric acid. Caustic Soda causes too much damage, it strips metal not just the oxide.

Quality is ok.
Obviously they are it CNC cranks like RaceFace etc. they don't really look super exotic. There are a few burrs on the spider.
