I wanted to transform used horseshoes into beautiful fine art because there's so much meaning in a worn shoe. Days later, as I cleaned the poop and rust off the shoes, I realized the primer I was using said "DO NOT REMOVE ALL OF RUST FOR PRODUCT TO WORK."
Sometimes a little rust is necessary. If you don't give up, beautiful things can be made of even the dirtiest of messes - and you're not going to get something beautiful without getting a little messy in the process. Each custom original horseshoe was worn by a horse in Central Kentucky.
