Are those commercially available pre-cut silicon bronze leaves?
Would you share your source?
Do they come in larger sizes?
I made some life size lotus blooms in welded silicon bronze and forged stainless steel for some signage several years ago,but I had to get the leaves plasma-cut and it was quite expensive.I'd love to find a source for die-cut leaves...

You will find the scales I use here.

The exact alloy is something you would need to ask them about. They come in two sizes you will find listed there among the other metals, and they also have solid bronze tags of similar quality. They stick to very specific punches for their products so a custom leaf is unlikely.

I seriously need to try this. I should revisit the comment you wrote me and try to make sense of it! Hahaha!

Don't suppose you'd be willing to share how to make one of these? That would be an awesome gift for the ladies in my life ;)

There will eventually be a tutorial when time permits.
Until then:

Quickie tut, six layers of Dscale 19g(1mm) 1/4(6.4mm) and 20g(.8 mm) 3/16(4.8 mm).

Made in a tube. Leaving one layer top, and one on bottom you open the big rings on the middle layers adding in a scale between each. Giving you four scales per layer. The natural tightness of the design makes the shape.

Hope that helps.

I'm a metal worker, but not like this. I, unfortunately, fit and weld for bridges and such.

How I envy your ability to make art out of metal.

Amazing job, absolutely amazing.

I'm gonna visit your page and look at your other stuff now :)
