    Using Tig as Decorative Process

    Thought I would let you see some of my Decorative uses of Tig. I do join materials also, but this is for my artwork. These took about 30 seconds per line of dots, and are not enhanced anyway, they actually look better in real life, colors are very irridescent, up close at 4x magnification they look really wild, will post another pic with closeup....Thanks for looking, Paul

    Ha! I wondered how you got the "scales" spaced so evenly!

    I would also be interested in seeing any completed works using this process that you have done, do you have a website?

    thanks Helios, hope yo noticed I used Helium with the Argon....you being Helios, and as it is 304 stainless, the color stays on as long as you do not put acid on it.....Dynasty 200 DX when I first got it in 04

    Walker, I have not applied this finish to any art per se as of yet, I have some other small pieces out of lowcarbon, but they have a ferric oxide coating [RUST] send your email address to me via my address here and I will try to send some shots. Thanks for the comments....Paul

    That is a really slick finishing detail. I am an artist in Arizona, so I have a great appreciation for art work of other artists. I would love to see a couple of pics of your completed work, if you wouldn't mind.
