Stainless steel backsplash brushing/swirlling ideas?
As you can see I put up just a piece of "virgin" sheetmetal just over the stove as I though it would meet my needs. My wife seems to have a personal vendeta against spatter shields over a frying pan thus leaving oil on the walls away from the backsplash. So now I'm thinking of throwing out the existing piece and getting a piece that's cut to cover the entire wall. I've seen swirls in ss before and want to know what brush or grind attachment would I get for my drill and what exactly is the process?

EG, lets say I get a 6" brush or grind, I assume put the brush/grind center directly over the upper left corner, hold it steady and let it grind/brush. Pick it up and try to move it exactly 4" to the right and put it down etc. Does that make sense? Is that the correct process? I spent 15mins trying to find pix of what I want it to look like and couldn't find it. The pic is of my current arrangment

Have you ever heard of "engine turned" sheet metal? You've probably seen it in interiors of cars from the 60's. You can go to the Eastwood Company's website and check out their panels. You may also find some techniques if you search the web.

Try this to see if this is what you are looking for:

Here's another site for ideas:

Try splatter screens. I got mine at Target. They are like pot lids but with window type screen and are just for this.
