An itch that needed scratching

Recommended Posts

For no other reason that the idea was in my head, I decided to have a try at a real rough, grungy, piece of welded scrap. This was the end result! What do you think, Guys?

Lot of fun.  I have seen similar work sold at craft shows in the past, if you want to go that route.  Find the right festival and you are all set.

I'm told that, in the UK, if you're at the right craft show in some swanky part of the country, there's a good chance of getting phone number prices for this stuff, although I didn't make it to sell it anyway! I'll probably use it as a backdrop for selling my seax's and medieval cutlery!

at some you may if you are known and those sort of craft shows charge phone number pitch prices.

I trade at lots of types of events in the UK, last weekend it was demoing at a music festival, in a few weeks a major land rover show

Yep, definitely 'grungy' ! A real attention grabber! Nice patina too.

Area code included or excluded? :P

Either way, im apparently in the wrong line of work. 

A cool looking piece. Aus pretty much summed up my exact thoughts.

A post apocalyptic knight. The welds look like scars.  Cool piece.

As my wife tells me:  "you gotta sleep sometime!"     Having once tried sleeping in a chainmail shirt, before marriage---trying to see what it was like wearing it for several days straight---I can say you will have to sleep sometime not wearing the helmet...good luck!  (And please hand her my business card with the "will clean out shops and garages" written on the back...)
