a sheet of lead with mickey cut-out.. lead cuts like butter under such intense heat, so I had to move fast!
sorry for the size.. the new phone cam is apparently, lame.
looks like fun - can you use a template or is that out of the question?
you must have a really steady hand - i know how fast that lead melts
GREAT use of the scraps! let us know what else you do.
Tampa, are they paying you to do this at work, or are you taking liberty of your on-the-clock time?
Heck, I don't care, I just enjoy the photos!!!! Great job!
I am in need of some Disney magic!!
thanks guys I'm glad you like and I've been wanting to this for while! Next one is of Stainless Steel and was from a hand made pattern, but was still sut out by hand, which is hard!
never thought i'd see the day when Mickey turned Metal!!
can you get someone to take pics of you doing all this?
I think it would be awesome to see all the equipment you use to do this ,
but then I am an enginerd
Mickey hasn't just gone metal, he's gone HEAVY metal!
(Get it? Lead=heavy) Ha Ha.
They call me "Nana"
two made of stainless steel sheet metal.. one on right was made with a duct tape stencil while left was free-style.
a very small mickey that started this thread, and is made of standard galvenized sheet metal. I tried to make a HM in one of the ears lol.. I think it looks like a ghost.
good job ... got any more
any you sending anyone??
I want to do like you said, and take pics of the cutting process.. I like that..
and I don't want to get in trouble so I toss them once photographed.
