So cool you expanded out of woodworking only!
This is a public art piece I’ve been working on.
It’s all hand forged from steel. The primary material is 12g plate.
She is life sized. It’s been a super fun project so far and I have learned a lot. Really expanded my skill set on this one.
Next up is a large steel ribbon that swirls around her and at it’s tip (about 8’ up) will be a large dragonfly (steel and copper).
I’m presently contemplating what type of finish to use. Typically, I spray with muriatic acid and then torch it a bit to bring out some nice rusty hues. Then I spray with a satin outdoor clear coat. On this I may add a rubbed on hint of colour on the dress… open to finish options as I kind of like it as is (no colour)
