Leather and Steel - Flower

Some quick fooling with mild steel rings and leather. Rust is on it's way, this will get better after the process gets further...

I love mild steel both for that dark grey look it has, and that it can rust. usually rust is undesirable, but sometimes you really just want that beautiful rust look

Thank you.


Calyx, the leather was first crooked with flame, just the edges. Flame also makes the leather harder. Then I tossed this to the dishwasher to initiate the rust and to soak the leather really wet. After the washer this went immediately to the oven. High temperature / fast drying makes the leather stiff and gives some character to the leather.
