Rusting Antique Cast Iron Statue

| | | | | | |

Hello All
I refinished a cast iron sculpture that has been outdoor and rusting. It is over 100 years old. The finish that it had was a primer and paint with a faux finish to make it look like aged copper (verde patina look). This finish was done about 15 years ago and was getting pretty rusty. I was hire to redo it. The client wanted to get back to being able to see the metal and not the layered paint that was covering it. I sand blasted it and used non-acidic pewter-colour patina with subtle dark and light highlights, then clear coated it (all products were from sculpt nouveau).


New Work Installed - "Duel Aspirations"

| | | | |

Hi all, it's been a while since I posted, but finally got another piece finished. Here are some picts of a sculpture I just installed yesterday in Kansas City called "Duel Aspirations". The piece is 12' tall and made from 12 ga sheet metal with a rust patina and stainless steel rods with a sandblast finish. The steel tower has 2 coats of Permalac, followed by a coat of Metal Oil. I'll go back and put another coat of metal oil on in a week or so, and then a few coats of wax.

Hi all, here is some picts and info on the fork sculpture which got installed at the beginning of may.

Stile di Famiglia (Family Style)

After being short listed for this sculpture call in the Towns Little Italy development in Omaha NE, we were asked to come up with proposals that were distinctly Italian and represented the feel for the neighborhood, which seemed very fun, friendly, and in some ways close to each other, much like a family. I kept coming back to the idea of a big Italian family sitting around a table eating dinner, everyone talking about their life or how their week went, laughing and enjoying the company.
