When at work have free time, my father does these things out of scrap metal. My father works as a welder.
I also make steel roses
but I dont have any pictures, I gave them all away
and the thorns bro
you need sharp as fuck thorns
I use a torch to blue the steel on the petals after shaping, it gives them a lot of depth in colour I think.
these are not mine, but another anon from here in a thread about 3 months ago
I believe he forges his though, I can't think of any other reason to heat one up this much unless it was in a forge.
This is really cool shit. Thanks for posting OP
I dated a guy for awhile who was a sheet metal worker and he used to make really nice stuff like boxes and frames and such, but he didn't do welding, it was all folds and rivets and such.
