I cut these leaves out from a sheet of metal using tin snips, I then hammer the veins, melt the edges and weld on a welding rod stalk. The heat from the welding torch creates beautiful colour patterns which differ from leaf to leaf making each one unique.
All of my leaves are available with or with out the ladybird (which is a little blob of weld that I add whilst making the leaf and then paint). I like to put the ladybird in a different position on each leaf. Please let me know when you order whether you would like the ladybird or not.
