Welder improve skills by making sculptures

Welder improve skills by making sculpturesAn amateur welder improved his skills by creating sculptures. Zhenxing a welder of a car repair shop created sculptures from steel and cement with techniques he learned all by himself.

Zhenxing already had seven sculptures finished and have sold one sculpture already for 800 yuan, he never had any professional materials need to do sculptures so he decided to make his own using steel and cement, which he bought from nearby stores or whatever steel he can salvage from the place he works from. He began to appreciate the art when he first saw it on a TV program that featured sculpting. He liked the pieces he saw so he tried to do it himself.

Even with no time or the money to study the course properly, Zhenxing honed his skills by reading books and watching TV shows. Zhenxing never had formal training but ever since he can recall he always played with wax and trying to create animals with it. He also said most of the sculptures are copied from the books and TV programs and since he grew up in the farm most of his subjects are animals. He estimate to spend around 50 yuan in making one sculpture and he was happy to know that people are willing to pay more than he expected for his work.
