Today I wanted to work with the weather, so I tried coloring and heat treating a drum while it was snowing (see the clip below). I used handfuls of snow to cool the metal in different spots, resulting in colors I've never seen in this metal before. This photo is of the finished drum.

At first, making these drums was more of a business idea. But then as I made my first batch of 10 drums in July of 2013, I realized I had stumbled onto making a very special musical drum.
