Blacksmith Metal Rose DIY Kit Only
Make your own Metal Rose! I have created a DIY kit and instructional video on how to hand forge your own rose. In the Metal rose DIY kit only you will receive: 3 x Petal blanks 1 x Sepal blank 1 x Stem 12mm ø with pre forged hip and tenon The kit is aimed at those who have access to tools and equipment - heat source, anvil, vice or suitable alternatives. Hand tools - hammer, tongs, scroll tongs/pliers etc. Many people are taking up blacksmithing as a hobby and have basic set ups available to them, however you might not have all the tools and equipment you need to carry out a particular project. That is why I have created the Metal Rose DIY Kit. By supplying you with the petal and sepal blanks there is no need for you to design and calculate the template or try to cut them out yourself, all you have to do is forge them! The stem is supplied with a pre-forged hip and tenon, taking the difficulties of creating those parts out of the process too! You just forge down the remaining stem from '12mm ø starting stock' If you require my in depth instructional video on how to make the rose which will take you through how to draw down the stem, forging the petals, assembly and riveting the petals, sculpting your rose and surface finishing, please see other listings. A great project for yourself to try or a unique gift for someone who enjoys working with metal. I have been creating hand forged roses for many years, they even travel the world on two cruise ships! My kit and video will offer you my knowledge and skills so you can create your own beautiful sculpted metal rose.
