Gatski created this darling little, dog entirely from reclaimed metal. He hand drew the pattern on the metal with soapstone and cut it with a hand held plasma cutter. He then hand hammered and arc welded the dog into shape. The blue is hand painted milk paint. The metal is sealed with a water-based enamel. Each dog will have subtle variations. We cut them by hand and each piece of metal has slight color differences. Care: Wipe clean with a damp cloth. If outdoors, you can maintain a shiny metal look [entirely optional] by applying a clear metal enamel, available in a spray can at your local hardware store.
