Heavy Metal Hand

This is the Heavy Metal Hand. This is NOT A CASTING. It is a life-sized solid steel hand. I have another one that I am still working on. These take a while create. Projects like this require a lot of grinding and blending. I really like making my work solid.
I am letting this one continue to rust, except the hand. The hand has been rubbed with used motor oil. The oil soaks in to protect the metal from rusting, but also gives it a nice color. Once in a while I take an old rag and rub in more oil. If all goes to plan, the rest of the piece should rust up nicely leaving the hand with a bare steel look.
This piece is for sale. Contact me for more information.
