The donor for my orchid sculpture project is a 1 1/2" fire line.
I've been experimenting with fold forming. You can see the lines in the metal caused by the folding and the stuff the torch burns in when I anneal(just short of boiling the surface). When I hammer in the convex shape off anvil, the folding seems to hold its own. I'm quite pleased. Six shaped and eight to go.
