Instant old

Welding, wiring and sculpting our pieces always seems to take a long time. With the painting process however the sculptures come together in a hurry. Today the logging truck and steam donkey started to get the treatment. The steam donkey started to look pretty cool as it got it's iron paint. 

When we applied the rust activator it got real interesting and started to look it's age in a hurry. It is now hard to believe it is made from concrete.

While Matt was working on the steam donkey Peter was busy with the logging truck. It was first painted nice and shiny.

Then it too got the aging and rust treatment. The full effect on both pieces won't be evident until tomorrow.

Tomorrow the log will get it's base coats and perhaps the start of the glazes. It won't be long until it is ready for the drive to Squamish.
