Fish on my anvil

Recommended Posts

I,m still stuck on the fish thing. I sold the bluecat fish (which I recently posted) to a guy who then asked if I could do some blue gill. So a week later this is what I came up with 4 blue gill. He wants to mount them on the wall in his office swimming away from the catfish. He is interested in doing the wall in his office like an aquarium with different fish sculpures. Sounds like I'll be making fish for a while, and that's a good thing.

The bluing is done with a propane torch. Just watch the steel change colors as it heats then pull back at the first sign of blue and see how far it spreads. If you get it to hot it will turn a silverblue. Then just a clear coat good for indoors don't think it would last outdoors.
