Custom Shrimp Weathervane design to be powder coated for the Dawson’s Florida Shrimp Shack.
The design is transferred from the drawing right onto the copper sheet then each side is cut out by hand.
Next, each side is hand sculpted into relief. No molds are used. This step is completely left to the sculptor’s skill.
The two halves of the shrimp’s body are soldered together using special solder to be able to withstand the heat of the powder coating oven later..
The shrimp body has been mounted on the spindle tube, the legs formed and attached.
The black enamel has been added to the powder coating to complete the two-tone finish.
