An artistic play of liquid pigments

An artistic play of liquid pigments


An aluminium sheet as a canvas – the production plant as a studio.

Pigments flow into the aluminium and into each other: black into yellow, red into blue. BWB is skilfully expanding its classic surface-coating options in the area of art, and this involves stopping the conventional, precisely planned anodising process before the entire surface gets dyed. The liquid pigments are instead then applied manually with a brush, pipette and other aids as desired.

The pigments penetrate the layer structure in a watercolour-like manner, creating a dazzling play of colours. Hot water finally seals the fine-pored surface, embedding the pigments deep in the aluminium. This sealing durably and protectively locks the colours into the surface.
