"Destragon - the destroying dragon" was created by applying successive oxy-acetylene weld beads over a steel skeletal armature one bead at a time. Over 70 hours of welding were put into this dragon during my initial schooling. What's interesting is that the learning curve is shown in the final dragon. I started with uncontrolled weld beads at the tail of the dragon, and ended with controlled scales at the head. The wings were made of sheet steel with a "buttering" of bronze weld rods over the sheet metal.
All in life can be creative if you work it right. The rewards are legion. Demand the stimulus right to be part of it.

A new welding wire from Hobart Brothers, the TM-770 wire's smooth, stable and soft arc creates virtually spatter-free welds to minimize post-weld cleanup time and help increase productivity. Engineered for single- and multiple-pass welding in all positions, TM-770 produces a flat weld bead profile, even in the vertical-up position, and is designed for use with mixed shielding gases.
