    Plasma Mickeys!

    I've decided to post hand-cut Mickey and Disney shapes using a plasma torch (bout time huh ).. mainly for the purpose of your enjoyment and heck.. mine too.

    So lets get the fun stuff out of the way for all you whacky people first, shall we.. no, they are not for sale.. they've probably already been melted down by the recycle guy. Plus they're practice pieces so I can perfect curve cutting. With all that being said, enjoy!


    copper scrap with cuts penetrating just deep enough to leave discoloration along with solid cut-outs.

    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

    Tampa, are they paying you to do this at work, or are you taking liberty of your on-the-clock time?

    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!

    stay tuned!

    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.
