1. Can the items be hung outdoors?
A. The suns u.v.rays combined with rain, salt air etc. will eventually break down the lacquer on the work
so I recommend them for indoors primarily, however ventilated bathrooms or even under an outdoor patio/pergola
will give many years of pleasure.
2. Do I need to clean the work?
A. No cleaning ever needed!!!! All items are clear lacquered so there will be no tarnishing or rust. It will only require a normal dust.
3. What is the postage cost?
A. Postage within Australia is free.
4. Do you sell to shops?
A. No longer supplying wholesale.
5. How is it made?
A. All items are firstly drawn onto a sheet and cut from either steel, copper or brass using an oxy acetylene torch (hot flame), laser cutter or plasma cutter, often there is a combination of cutting techniques on each piece of work.
The work is hammered into shape and often details are embossed with pieces of wire. Parts are welded/soldered together, and then sprayed black from behind. The art is polished on a buffer and then I airbrush the colours on and bake with an industrial heat gun. Once it has cooled I spray a clear lacquer to seal it and create a beautiful shine.
