Hello, all of these Happy Skraps pieces are made out of a shop that my dad share and I share. I get recycled scraps of metal from different businesses. These suppliers are just going to throw the metal or cutouts away anyway so I am happy to take care of it for them. I also get parts from garages or everyday people that want to get rid of metal. I then weld the parts together to create an object of my imagination. The finished product is dipped in polyurethane to protect the coat from scratches and give it a shinier look.
