animal – day 6

Starting forging the skin. It’s quite challenging because the metalshop I’m working at doesn’t actually have a working forge right now. My process is to heat small areas of a sheet of metal using an oxyacetilyne rosebud torch, and then do the baning on a piece of wood or in the sand or on an anvil. After I have a few pieces forged, I weld them on. It’s slow going, but I can really see the animal taking shape!
