all kinds of colored badges in large cavities as well so I dont see it too far flung to do a very soft iron blue/silver patina to test out and go from there?
You forgot the blue, yellow, green, purple of "Feel" brand wedges

Maybe it's far-fetched...maybe it isn't even possible...maybe it is. Who the hell knows!
It's just a thought...
Those irons and wedges which have a dark finish from finish options such as melonite, QPQ, gunmetal, are in essence a form of the golf industry offering a different color for the body of the iron. Just look at any of these after you play and hit balls for a year or hit sand shots and you can see the color dissipates a lot. And these are all color finishes that impregnate into the steel of the iron head.
Paint does NOT like divot taking, sand on range balls, sand traps, especially if you put the paint on the sole and face. So don;t hold your breath when it comes to seeing different PAINT finish irons in the future. Paint in areas that never touch the ground or get blasted by sand during a bunker shot might happen, but you will not see paint finishes on the sole or face because they just will look terrible in a short period of time.

Woods and hybrids have a top surface that lends itself to this. but when it comes to parts that meet ball or turf (or dirt/sand/pebbles) it's black or bare metal.
Given the claims TM's made about the benefits of white over the last few years does anyone not think they would have had a set of white irons if it could have been done at an acceptable cost/quality level?
