Below is my metal art....using soldering ....for those lucky once who have a welding kit....go ahead and weld...it's so much easier and better! I remember seeing something like this online while surfing for metal art...but i cant recall where.
Step 1: What you need...
Anyway....they probably thought i was bonkers...as women usually..... in my country......do not get into woodwork, metal work or any predominantly male work :-)...so I'm weird.
Basic materials you need:
hot glue gun
Strong wire...but you should be able to bend it when pressed real hard by hand
Oil based Wood stains (my alternative to patina)
Soldering iron and soldering wire
Some wires...to bind the strong wire( since the strong wire doesn't get soldered)..I used the wire from some of my old burnt up insulated wires
