Default Steel Iron Fish Art

Hey Guys,

I've got a couple of pieces sheet metal and thinking about making some iron art of some bluefin, wahoo, and marlin. I've seen a couple of postings before with people doing it. Any help would be great.

My neighbor made a sailfish out of 1/4" steel and it looks pretty good. He cut out the shape and ground it to his liking then polished. He heat treated the polished steel to give it the blue yellow and other colors before sealing it to keep it from rusting.

If you are familar with case hardening or willing to experiment, you can create some beautiful colors and patterns.
