yea, how weird but that's what I thought too. definitly not intentional....
for the candle holder/donnie darko skull I did use a oxy cutting toarch. the other skull was cut with a plasma cutter.
then the base of the candle holder and the hooks on the pot holder were cut w/ the plasma cutter as well just to get rid of the square edge..
then I used the torch to heat up and bend the hooks and welded the bits w/ the mig machine..
