To get it to look like that will probably cost more than what the gun is worth.

Annodizing is not a paint job. It is tinting the metal to make it look a certain color. And like Cooky said. It will probably cost you more than your gun is worth.

fuck yolo

A good single color annodizing would be near $100. It's more for 2 colors (like main color and accents), even more for things like fade and splash and such, and more for every color. A good custom anno job ain't cheap.

Annodizing is an electrochemical process that seals aluminum to protect it from corrosion. Wile color tinting is is not often a part of the process, its not the primary goal and wouldn't be capable of such detail. My guess would be the graphics inthe

Sorry. Posting on my phone. Anyway. ...the graphics in the above link were probably done using hydrodiping or nylon graphics.

Graphic ano is absolutely possible, but the application of ink is achieved in a different way than a standard dip and soak. I suspect it's via ink sheets (like silk screening) before sealing the ano.

IMO re-anno is rarely worth it, especially on anything but a high end.

To be perfectly frank, a modern high-end electro is the very last thing I'd have re-anodized. Custom ano is for keepers.
