ArtMetal has been in existence since the very start of the World Wide Web. That is both good and bad. The good part is that we have a tremendous artistic metalworking resource available for FREE to anyone on the Internet! The not so good is that our content management system is showing its age. We haven't been able to upgrade the system and keep up to date with the latest wizbang technology. This means some things are breaking and we are not in a place right now to put the time into fixing it. I apologize for that!

We will upgrade the forums in the not too distant future so new users will be able to register and use the system. For now though, only existing users will be able to use the forums to post and comment. Note that placing images into posts is broken. You can upload images and place them in your favorite gallery.

If you want to see an overview of how the site is structured, please visit the Site Help - FAQ (link) section, or head over to our community section to see the latest blogs, pictures, and group entries from our community of sculptors, blacksmiths, jewelers, and fabricators. Or, stay up to date by subscribing to ArtMetals content via FeedBurner and have it delivered to your favorite rss reader automatically! Or subscribe to the latest ArtMetal posts and receive it in your mailbox via email!
