I Forge Iron


Recommended Posts

Thanks, Neil, and thanks, Beth.

The petals are all forged individually from 20mm x 3mm flat- textured, chiselled and formed, chiselled with a blunt chisel into the ends a couple of times to give the little "divot"- the centre is a squashed ball that has been punched for the texture. The petals are MIG'd to the back of the centre. Each flower head took about two and a half hours! The leaves were made from 50x5mm flat and 30x3mm flat for the smaller ones, they took a lot of time too- I've been a bit religious about recording my time in the workshop- and both daisies took about 14 hours work so that would be 7 hours each (of course that's with breaks!!. I have today added one more leaf on each of them to sturdy up the base so they don't wobble as much! Now comes the puzzle of how to price them for the exhibition... :)
