Welding these days isn’t just used by labourers in the industry; many people are trying their hand at creating welding art and are looking to take their skills to the next level. Welding is, put simply, just a form of creation – reshaping and forming pieces of material together to create amazing structures. If you have a basic understanding of welding, we have outlined how you can start creating your own art with your skills.
First, though let’s take a look at some of the best art created by welders around the world.
Based in Houston, Austin is a welding instructor who creates colourful welding pieces as shown by his creative candy skull art.
Another welder based in Houston Texas, Scott creates colourful welds using tig welding and builds amazing layers throughout his art that give an iridescent look.
David Madero is a welder and artist that creates incredible pieces of art, combining both of his skills. After the attention his work has received, he has established his own website and has since gone on to create amazing welding art for huge clients such as Jack Daniels. He is now taking commissions from clients for other large-scale campaigns.
What you can do
In our previous blog, we explained the different types of welding, which will help you to understand how to create your own welding art. One great way to personalise your welding art is by incorporating colour into the weld. Colour is created in weld when the metal oxidises, which is caused by the structure of the heated metal meeting with the air and atmosphere. Slight differences in temperatures with the air and metal cause different colours, so you can start experimenting with your own coloured welds.
