Step 1: Sketch

Remove the paint from your bottle and sketch out your design. I use a grinder and ultra thin cutting disc to start cutting out the design.

Step 2: Any Old Iton

I used a piece of 4" box section to create the helmet part of the design, this was nice and rusty which gave the design an authentic look.

Step 3: Crown and Chimney

I used some 1" pipe to create the spikes around the helmet. The burner had two chimneys to start.

Step 4: Test Burn

The burner looked great lit up but the flames were firing out of the eyes rather than the chimney and blacking up the helmet.

Step 5: 3 Tier Chimney and Paint

I added another chimney to give this sucker 3 chimneys. I masked up the rusty helmet part of the burner and hit the burner with 3 coats of Ultra High Temp black, I then gave the rusty helmet 3 coats of UHT clear coat.

Step 6: Burn the Witch

Amazing design, but sadly rather illegal in the UK:

Mark620 (author)baz40962015-04-29

only if he does not own the tank. If you are renting it: it is illegal to destroy other persons property.

The idea is good but some of details very sharp. This is very dangerous!

doddieszoomer (author)vicnur2015-02-19

The details have actually all been ground down and are actually quite dull...they just look sharp...

Looks good but children would get hurt on spikes.

Is that when they get burnt from touching the wood burner

It is important to only use gas bottles from companies that are no longer trading and fill the bottle with water to displace any left over gas. Safety first people.
