    Metal Rose

    Hey Everyone,

    I made this Rose a year ago. Thought you guys would be interested.
    I made it all out of scrap steel I had lying around. The petals and leaves are maybe 14-16guage and the stem is .25" rod.
    I finished the petals with a heat patina and the leaves with guilders paste. Then I clear coated the entire rose.

    I'm always looking for feedback so feel free to tell me what you think.

    Here is a link to my website with more of my sculpture work:

    If you cant fix it with a hammer, it must be an electrical problem.

    great attention to detail!
    There are no problems. There are only solutions. It's your duty to determine the right one.

    It looks like you just cut it off of a bush and laid it down. It looks like a real rose.

    Thanks for all of the compliments! If I was going to do it again I would definitely use a thinner material. It took a lot of muscle to form all of the petals. Plus it is rather top heavy.

    I had about 7hours in it start to finish.
