so he just painted the face ??
The awesome coloring is an anodized finish. An anodized surface is the second hardest surface trumped only by a diamond. This why that baby will look great long after we're all worm food. Do a search on "custom anodizing". You can do this with any piece of aluminum.
You could set it off even more by laser etching your graphics. That would mean that neither the finish or graphics would ever wear away. But it ain't cheap!
If you want to see some creative anodizing and laser etching check this out. And yes they ( and others) will do this on anything aluminum , including a mixer faceplate , if ya got the cash!
