"I didn't melt the lead. It is 50 lbs of buckshot in each piece of pvc. 17" tall with a screw on top. The dumbbells are also 50 lbs (about 12" tall) and all I did was tap a 1/4" thread for an eyebolt and paint them"

"thanks Richard, sent a friend request so I can pm you. I'm thinking the steel is better as it's more dense, and I've tried concrete in PVC. But I'm open to any solutions! "

What are the best things about art fairs
When people love your art, they buy full price. They're happy, you're happy. Everyone walks away with a smile on their face. Also, just hanging out at nice shows, nice weather in nature with other artist friends.
Best show ever and why
St George Fine Arts Festival - I got a lot of comments that my work was different than what was around there, so I sold double what I've ever sold anywhere else. Also easy and close to my hometown.
Worst show ever and why
Hard to say, any show that I have to drive 4+ hours each way and barely cut a profit. Sometimes not in the best parts of town.

What is one fun fact about yourself?
I am an artist who does a good amount of shows yearly, but I also have multiple other businesses where I work on the computer. The shows are a nice way to get off the computer!
