Does anodizing stick to other anodizing? What would happen if you anodized a marker red, then lasered a pattern into it, then ano'd it blue? Would the red color be affected?

Anodizing is actually the process of changing the surface structure through controlled oxidation. You can then add color by dyeing the part, which gets into the nano-pores created during the anodizing process and sealing the metal. Lasering would remove the anodized and dyed surface, but to re-anno they'd have to start the piece over from scratch.

Are you looking for a base color, and the pattern of lasering to be another color? I think Caustic Customs is experimenting with color lasering, don't know how successful they've been though.

Caustic Custom anodizing has been experimenting, otherwise he's done some really cool work.
