DECORATIVE METAL FLOWER SCULPTURE

Blue Iron Sprig

THE ABOVE METAL FLOWER SCULPTURE IS A CREATIVE AND DECORATIVE EXAMPLE OF BLENDING FLORAL DESIGN, INTO AN ATTRACTIVE METAL ART SCULPTURE. USING IRON ROD FOR THE STEMS AND FLOWERS HELPS PRESENT A DELICATE SILHOUETTE OUTLINE, WHICH HIGHLIGHTS WELL WITH LIGHT BACKGROUNDS.

THE UNIQUE FEATURE ON THE SMALL STEM IS AN ORNAMENTAL BULB WITH A TINY PIGTAIL SPROUT PROTRUDING FROM THE CENTER. A SOLID STEEL OVAL BASE MADE UP OF 1/4 INCH FLAT BAR, PROVIDES A SHAPELY ANCHOR FOR THIS PIECE.

AN EXCEPTIONAL FINISH...COMING UP WITH THE PAINT FINISH WAS CHALLENGING, SOMETHING ORIGINAL AND PLEASING WAS THE FOCUS. THE BASE COAT IS A TEXTURED FLAT BLACK, FOLLOWED BY A TEAL TOP COAT THAT WAS LIGHTLY APPLIED BY A SPONGE. THE FINAL STEP WAS BLENDING A METALLIC RUBY WAX, WHICH WAS GENTLY RUBBED ONTO THE SURFACE CREATING A FAINT GLITTERING EFFECT, WITHOUT OVERPOWERING THE OVERALL VIEW.

THIS DECORATIVE METAL ACCENT CAN ADD SOME BEAUTY AND ORNAMENTAL STYLE TO HOME ACCENTING. GREAT FOR TABLE DECOR, OR MAYBE A SHELF DECORATION. I CURRENTLY HAVE THIS ONE DISPLAYED IN AN OLD WHITE BOOKCASE.
