All the technical work is finally done. All fish and hoops are welded/chased and grouped and standing on poles. Next I choose one of the single fish-on-a-stick, give it a last careful check-up and tweak any little things- then it is time for sandblast and patina. I usually set up the trusty canvas tent for sandblast, but these are so big that I need to build a large plastic enclosed space flown from a wooden framework that I’ll attach to the big trestle beam that the hoists fly from. This will be part of tomorrow’s doings. Then it gets rainy all week, which might set the patina back til things dry out. Utah rain rarely settles in for long, so if I work between the rain drops I should be able to keep things moving along.
