this tree is REALLY eye catching. I think the trunk of the tree really makes you wanna keep looking at it, great piece! Are the leaves mild steel as well?

Keep the cool art coming man, GREAT JOB!

Thanks Sam, the leaves are

Thanks Sam, the leaves are mild steel sheet metal. Even though I ordered Hot Rolled steel, it was kind of shiny like cold rolled which when combined with the light rust that was developing gave the leaves an almost bronze like look. After seeing it finished, but before it was fully rusted, I might try using stainless steel for the leaves next time. The conrast between the silver leaves and rusted trunk was great.
