My toaster plastic white. Everything hard if you don't know how.

I don't know. Cloning the same. Shadows, highlights are the same. Keeping texture the same. Why working with skin is different? Let's pretend it is not a face but leather couch. Same skin.

Re: still life retouching techniques

I don't buy into different skill sets for different images. Mask, curve, clone and brush pretty well gets you through most projects. We all use the same toolset and it's only our artistic ability that sets us apart from our rivals. Not technique as such; rather it's the draughtsmanship that comes with formal training or plenty of practice and if you don't have basic inherent ability, all the technique in the world won't help. If you are really good at skin I don't think brushed metal will be problematic and vice versa.
