Fabricated steel bones with stainless steel highlights, bronze ligaments, and copper skin. You can't live in the southwest without sculpting a horse.
Sometimes here in Arizona you drive by as small, bare, dusty lot with a horse just starving and rotting away on it, and you wonder, "What in Hell are those people thinking?" as you contemplate the owner's reality.

I am trying to find out the best rustproofing idea for a firepit commission I have just finished. It is 3/16 mild steel and will be placed a few blocks from the sea in San Francisco so it will rust. There is already a nice patina on it which I am keen to keep. Any suggestions for rustproofing without just painting it. What oils can I use that will be ok with the fire and not smell too much.

My 1st post here. I was doing some browsing for handrail designs and came across architects using Cor-ten steel to create works or art, building claddings etc. My question is, if I cut up a 20ft shipping container, which is made of Cor-ten steel, remove the paint, would I get the same patina after?
