OMG 3 hours later and I have 1 lumpy leaf frame sort of done (no braces or ends glued together).  I have got to find an easier way to bend the pipe.  I've been using a heat gun and sand filled pipes but it takes forever and you can only do about 3 in at a time.  There's a thing called a Pipe Viper that's basically a spring that you insert and then bend the pipe cold but I can't imagine being able to bend anything with a long arch.  I know I feel road hard and put away wet...

More research....

That was a bust...too flimsy.  I read online how to bend pvc pipe so I'm trying that next...

I found some small drain tube and put 12 gauge (biggest I could still bend).  I made the leaf 6 feet long and the wire and tubing combo is still too flimsy.

I looked up how to bend pvc pipe so I'm trying that next.

But how would I bend them?  I bought this drain tubing that's pretty small and 12 gauge wire.  I'm going to experiment with it.  I'll Post pics as soon as I can.

Wow, you really went above and beyond!  And thanks so much for the fire tip, I of course, didn't think about that at all.

I want to put something like this flower/tree thingie in the corner of my retail store.  The trunk won't be a problem but the leaves/petals...no idea.   I can't weld so it has to be made some other way, be lightweight and cheap.  Too new to post a pic so here is a link to a pic.

How about experimenting with that spray insulation foam?  Once dry, it can be carved and sanded.

I want too put something like this in the corner of my new store.  Much smaller scale and of course, I have no welding skills.  I was thinking stiffed fabric, paper mache or something.  Needs to be lightweight and cheap to make.  Any suggestions?
