Check this out. I've got an artist guy in my studio, who won't admit he is an artist trying to convince me to tell him the secret materials and techniques I use to create my unique Jazz paintings. LOL!
Next he'll be in Atlanta asking for the formula for Coca-Cola and KFC asking about the nine herbs and spices!
If he was honest, I'd probably would have told him. He'd rather be deceptive. Shame on him.
