Re: dog show pictures and other stuff

You know, just like here at school, the girls pay attention to instructions and details. And out do 90% of the boys in shop classes. :o :shock: My wife is the same way. We went flyfishing on the Madison and the guide told her where to throw her line and did not let up until she did it exactly like h...

Re: Metal Art Fence

As beautiful that art work is, and the money made, what is this surrounding that needs such huge fence? :?

It really appears to block off the scenery ,more than add to it. ;)

Still that is a huge project for sure, nice work. :D

Re: steel fx ??????

First, I am working on bottling some 16 oz. starter kits and I think I'll offer the kits in 2 or 3 different combinations. Secondly, if your steel is clean BEFORE the patinas are applied, there is NO FURTHER CLEANING REQUIRED after the patina has been applied and force-dried with shop-air. The only...

Re: steel fx ??????

Yes, absolutely! Clear PC over my patinas is no problem. You just have to make sure your piece is 100% dry & tack-ragged to remove any flash-rust. The finish (PC) will "fish-eye" if there's any residual moisture or rust on the surface. It's also best if your Clear PC is 90% Gloss, whi...
