This is a table top flower I made out of Plexiglas! the petals were made by warming the plexi glass with a heat gun and bending in the shape of petals.



some petals were heated to the bubbling point to provide texture, while other petals were sand blasted to produce different textures.



the base was made out of a thicker piece of Plexiglas and spray painted black with glossy black flowers hand painted for extra accents



the black spirals were created by black Plexiglas heated and twisted around a pencil



comments and criticism greatly appreciated!

That is BLOODY EFFING AWESOME! Not just the technique, which intrigues me immensely, but the artistry of the finished product is amazing! It wouldn't have near as much personality without the multiple textures. It's a piece worthy of public viewing, for sure!

Guardie for life.

I am really interested in doing a personal swap, especially for greener things like reusable lady items, wool dryer balls, or other such things.  I can knit, sew, draw, and put things together in pretty neat ways.  Please PM me if you're interested.
