Welding Art?

What welding projects are you working on? Are you proud of something you built?
How about posting some pics so other welders can get some ideas?

Welcome aboard! There's a fellow on Instagram who does this, and makes incredible pieces. I have no idea what his process is, but he achieves excellent color control.

So, short answer, this stuff is real and can be done, but I can't advise you as to how.

I believe that it was polished to a high shine and then the color was added using a micro oxy/acetylene torch.
I have more questions than answers

Yea the man is Arronexus.

Yup to getting it down. Learn to control the hell out of the foot pedal and learn to control the puddle with the filler rod and watching the puddle.
A student now but really want to weld everyday. Want to learn everything about everything.

I agree with Josh here. Look at the blended shading around the corners of the eyes by the nose on the cat and the blended shading on both pieces everywhere....good luck tigging that.

Thank you for all the Answers!

@ Poland : I had the same idea with a torch to get the Colours.... welding than i clear the Steel Surface but dont polish it.
than I take a torch an get heat in the welding puddle, the colour are there but no so Strong and crazy like in the Pictures :(
you mean if i polish it I had a better result?

What you think also, he works only with Tig or Help to get this colour with a torch? Today I am at work and try it with polish and torch.

My friend is very good at weld writing. Not as complicated, but she gets the style right. (Kind of like a sledgehammer in a velvet bag) Sorry for stealing your photo Renee, if you ever see this, (Don't bash me)

His work doesn't show the uniform shading that the other 2 examples show so I believe Josh nailed it. Shaded with a jewelers torch.
