Welcome to Steel F/X! ~ I have been a  Metal-Crafter, Weldor & Artisan for over 25 years.    My background includes Silversmithing, CAD/CAM design, Graphic Design, Custom DXF Files and Steel Art Fabrication.  I use  State-Of-The-Art Metal-Working Equipment including my own line of Steel Patinas & Finishes, Printing on Metal, Torch, CNC Plasma-Cutting, Water-Jet Cutting & Light Steel Fabrication.
I have developed inventive techniques in the coloring, patination, dyeing & staining of steel with naturally occurring minerals that allow the steel to come alive with unique hues & colors.   I produce my own Steel Patinas & Dyes and  provide them Here to other Metal Artisans.      
My Ultra-Violet stabilized Clear-Coat and Powder-Coatings are suited for indoor or outdoor use. 

A lot of my work reflects the Cowboy Life / Southwestern theme, but any design, theme or application that you need can be accomplished.
The images on this site are just a small sampling of my art files.  I have 10's of 1000's of stock designs to choose from, or we can start from scratch. The equipment & technology I use does not limit the size of your project.  In fact, Life-Size Figures & Silhouettes are my specialty!

Dear Bill:

The railing panels you created for us are absolutely stunning!  Photo's just don't do them justice.  As we sit on our front porch, the panels are just as beautiful from the back side as they are beautiful from the front.  I've never seen anything quite like them.  You should be very proud of your ability as an artist.   

Your commitment to make sure your customers are pleased is so refreshing.  It has been such a pleasure to work with you.  I must also thank your wife Kris, for her part in making sure our panels traveled safely.  Not a scratch on any on them, so please thank the woman behind the man for us.  I'm sure she is a very valuable asset to you.

Words just can not describe how pleased we are with the railing panels.  They are a great addition to our home and such a conversation piece.  We are so glad we ordered them from you!

Thank you again for all of the hard work you put into creating a masterpiece just for us. 

Sincerely,
Lisa and Charles, AL  - 6/09
Bill,
The custom angel and dove you made for me is Absolutely AWESOME!  She is far more beautiful than I ever imagined.  You truly captured the spirit of what I wanted.  I know I will enjoy having her for years to come! Thank you again for sharing your amazing talent!  If anyone ever wants to know about you and your work, definitely refer them to me!  I've got to be one of the tops in your fan club!  I hope to have more artful requests for you in the future!   R.G., Oklahoma   7-22-09
Bill,

The silhouettes made it here and they look great. My wife was very happy with the results as well. I really appreciate your work, and for taking the time to make sure everything was done right. I will be showing them proudly, and recommending you to all my friends and family. I'm sure I'll have more work for you in the future. Once again, thank you very much, and have a great day.

Respectfully,
Michael J., Florida       -       9/09

Bill designed for me exactly what I wanted, I am more than pleased with my piece of art! I will be in contact for a few more pieces. Thank you Bill, nbFrom:N.B., San Antonio, Tx

Great Work... so glad I found your website!!!!  Yay for me!!!      Michele
Bill,
I really appreciate your talents. The figures you sent me where perfect in everyway.  I took the liberty to send you some pics.  Also, the figure for my "man room", could not have been a better choice.  Thank you again.
Rest assured, when the opportunity arises for me to purchase some more of your talents, I will definitely call you.      Take Care!

Hi, Bill

We received the cowboy day before yesterday. Rog installed him yesterday. We think he looks really good. What do you think?

Tried to tell Rog that it would look really good in my dining room, but he wouldn't go for it.  It will look better when he finishes his siding on the eaves above him, paints and moves some of the junk in front of his shop. Maybe this will inspire him to get busy.

Thanks for a job well done..................Sharon     9/2/10

OMG – I just got it and it’s one of the most BEAUTIFUL things I have ever seen.  Holy krap are you talented!!
THANK YOU sooooo much – you have totally made my Christmas!!!
Thanks again!

Hi Bill, 
You did an outstanding job of making the horse head medallions for us and then the gate man (Mark) did a great job of putting them into the gate.  We've had lots of wonderful comments on the gate and about the work you both did on it. You both take great pride in your work and it shows. Thank you and keep up the good work.

Hi Bill how are you? Last year you made a gate ornament for me to give to some friends. They were brought to tears when we gave it to them and I wanted to tell you thank you so very much for doing souch a beautiful job on what had to be a difficult piece of work. (the celtic dog in case you forgot)   THANK YOU!   Lynn H.
Bill - My husband opened up his early Christmas present last night and he was actually speechless! The beautiful logo gate sign you created is all that I expected and more - wonderful! As soon as we take the Christmas decorations off of the gate and put the sign up, I'll take a photo and send it to you. I've already given your web address to my neighbor who is envious and wants one too! Cheryl H.  Santa Clarita, CA


Thank you Bill for the two pieces I just received.   They are everything I expected and more.
