Topics I've Started

Hibiscus Flowers

15 September 2015 - 05:08 PM

Evert year our friends host a tiki party, and I make the prizes.  Prizes are for best tiki drink, appetizer and attire.


This year I went with Hibiscus Flowers, at least I hope they look like hibiscus flowers.  I used 2 inch copper pipe, annealed and shaped.  (cut, flattened and cut again) and miscellaneous steel stuff.  Then I played around with patinas.  I was trying for red on one of them, but finally gave it up, and went with flame coloring the copper one.  Should have got the colors deeper, as you lose a lot when clear coating.

I also did an outrigger canoe, which was a commission from last years tiki prize.
