Torching Metal—Develop Surface Variations

This video workshop takes you through my process of heating metals for interesting design. During the process the colors develop from the temperature of the flame. Different metals will create different colors. The palette of color is not extensive, mostly golds, reds, browns and blues depending on the metal and the temperature applied. Play with this to see what you come up with.

For safety be sure to wear protection for your face and eyes- goggles and/or face protection. Heat resistant gloves are helpful. 

Always think of your safety when using torches. Take precautions to be safe. Pick an area free of items that could start on fire when working. I always have a fire extinguisher within reach.
