Slade Poppies PDF Pattern, Closing in the Middle


After adding more blooms on both sides the picture is starting to emerge, really feels like it is coming together now. I still have the seed pods and some flower centers to do but for now I am concentrating on the remaining flowers.

Nearly there now, just have the last three flowers to do.Once every piece is cut I will then commence foiling, making any further adjustments as I proceed. The next process would be the first solder on the front of the panel. Panel is then very carefully turned over and the first solder repeated on the rear. I would then add the 12 mm zinc framing before doing the final bead soldering of all the seams. Panel would then have to be thoroughly cleaned before patina can be applied. Acetone can be very useful in preparing the Zinc prior to application.
