    Hi to all the reader.

    This time is another star, made as per suggestions read here for the star mk1.

    https://www.mig-welding.co.uk/forum/threads/how-to-make-a-star.76364/

    Instead of 1000 pieces, I made it with only 5, and a nice bit of grinding.
    Now it is in the painting area.

    The star was hard to ignite, so I added alcool to the photos.

    Hope you like it. :drunk::drunk:

    Nicely done
    A right faff to make with the interlacing.
    I have one in my front room for scaring visitors, my elderly loved it and had to show her friends the Satanist next door.
    it had sat around my workshop for a few years and I wanted something to fill a wall.
    Goes perfectly with the colour.
    Plan A is to have a collection of cryptic signs around the house.
    maybe Eye of Horus next, can anybody suggest any others.

    What thickness is the metal in yours?
    Mine is 4mm.
    For the next I will drop down to 2mm , thus avoiding the grinding step.

    the deathly hallows perhaps?

    Although I’d wager you’re not really into Harry Potter!

    Sad to mine is 25x3mm.
    I bet on your scale there was some violence getting the bits lined up.

    Yep.
    Both of them. I use mannequins as moulds to lay the rings out. Slow work.
