Blown Sketches

After a super frustrating time welding on my first project I decided to try and a have a little fun with the next one.  The assignment was to achieve a sense of actual balance or implied balance.  I spent so long welding and polishing the 25 pound base that I didn’t get to spend as much time making the paper look as papery as I wanted to, but the results are descent.  Credit to my son for the awesome sketches.

This process included welding, sandblasting, heat bending, and image transfer.
