Another painted weathervane to add to our range of designs. We did the Morgan in black last Christmas for a customer in New York; now here is the Connaught Green version. Really pleased with the finished result – just got the gold leafing to finish on the letters then this one can be sent out. Although I’ve painted a Morgan weathervane before, this one was a challenge because the model that I based the laser cut design on does not have a front bumper like the one here, it had the chrome over riders instead. As the customer wanted it painted to match his car, I had to try and fit it in.
In other news, have a look at this interview I did for Westermans, a welding equipment supplier based in Leicester. It is part of a campaign to promote women in welding, and to encourage others to join the industry. I think its really important because the average welder today is a 55 year old man, so obviously in ten years there is likely to be a shortage of welders. I see no reason why girls can’t have a go!
