    Here we have the original image and the completed piece. Unfortunately this is a memorial piece dedicated to the young man on the right. 3 Generations_Jimbo.jpg 3 Generations_Jimbo_Complete.jpg

    How did you apply the finish? Heat?

    This one is a product of metal dye/chemicals. And credit for the finish goes to my good friend Jimbo Dalton, not myself. I'm an old school torch man.

    Thank you very much! All of my "conversions" are done by hand, node by node in Torchmate CAD. This allows me to represent the detail as I choose and I really feel this process makes for some unique pieces. I like to think of the plasma torch as a pen or similar artists tool and the steel as the canvas.
