Great Instructable, I made a rose about 7 yrs ago out of Stainless, only I cut each petal out individually into the shape of a teardrop, getting progressively bigger, then hammered it out on the anvil to shape it before tig welding it to a 1/4" stainless rod. So I tried to make one like it out of copper, every time I would solder a petal on, one of the preivous ones would fall off, the way you did the petals would have solved that problem.
Made a bunch of these. Copper mainly, but also tried Aluminum. I like the results.
wasnt easy to bend and shape using .9 mirrored stainless but it got done cheers for the inspiration
I made an aluminium one for my best friends 18th birthday in attempt no314 to get out of the friend zone. She loved it! Zone remains unchanged though... any more ideas? xD
I thought this was a great idea for my upcoming 7th anniversary. Mine was made of all copper, using a gauged copper pipe for the stem. Since it was hallow, I was able to crimp above and below the petals and sepal. Both crimps were hidden by the flower and sepal itself once everything was in place. Also, I did not "texture" the petals, because i wanted to keep the finished product shiny.
