Finished Road Runner

The road runner is finally done. I let it rust all the way and then used a grinder to add some detail. I then let the new markings rust. This added some really cool dimension to the bird. I went back one more time with the grinder to add a few more highlights. Then I sealed it with a matte finish clear coat. When that dried it was too reflective still, so i used some extra fine steel wool to take the shine off. 
These are the shots of the road runner from my studio. Now I am boxing it up and shipping it down to Texas. I have a feeling this isn't the last road runner that I will be building. All of my work is unique, so the next road runner would be a little different than this one. 
I am always looking for new work or projects. I also love getting inspired, so send me your questions, ideas, pictures, anything. Email me at: Kellensmetalart@comcast.net. I am on facebook too, Kellen Jay Bain, but I am not so good about keeping current on there. Hope to hear from you. Peace.

Unbelievable! The difference between the bird the rusting version and the finished product is incredible. Constantly amazing!
