Below are the reasons why TIG welding is worth your time:

It allows you to weld a lot of materials

TIG welding technique, also known as gas tungsten arc welding, can be used to weld a number of metals and alloys—it can work with steel, stainless steel, aluminum, chromoly, copper, brass, nickel alloys, magnesium, bronze, and gold. It’s the technique used to weld bike frames, wagons, door handles, fenders, and lawn mowers. So, surely, it can deal with your strange taste for costumes.

It can produce clean, top-class welds

If you want high-quality welds, you need to learn how to TIG weld. This technique has excellent control on the arc and weld puddle, enabling you to create clean welds especially if looks matter. In TIG welding, the heat input is usually controlled by pressing a foot pedal, allowing you to control whether the weld paddle would heat up or cool down. This feature gives you accurate weld bead control. This is why it’s used in automotive welds, sculpture welds, and other cosmetic welds.

It creates no spatter or sparks

Only the needed amount of filler metal is added to your welding puddle when you use TIG welders, so there would be no sparks or spatter produced.

It requires no flux

Thanks to the Argon gas that protects the weld puddle from any contamination, no flux is necessary. There’s also no slag that could block your view of the weld puddle.

It doesn’t create fumes or smoke

Another thing you’ll love about TIG welding is that it doesn’t produce smoke or fumes, except when the base metal that’s being welded has contaminants or has grease, oil, paint, zinc, or lead. This is why you have to clean the material before welding.

It only needs one shielding gas

It enables you to weld in every position

Cover Your Face With Some Artistic Make Up

Most participants are wearing their very own costumes, sometimes they pull off a simple costume by being artistic in doing their make up. We girls love make up. It’s one of our essentials when going out. Don’t wear something formal okay, that will surely kill the festivity vibe. Wear make up the way you would not normally do it. Add skin-friendly stickers if don’t know how to design. Or add some glitters to make you noticeable.
