On behalf of Expert Village, I'm Terry, and I'm here to tell you today about building a wrought iron fence. Alright I've cut shapes of leaves out of eighteen gage material and I've placed them in the forge and I'm going to pound them out now so that I'll have leaves for my vines in my gate. I'll take my leaf out here. Can you hear me now? See the scale coming off. That's what I was talking about, that's why I always talk about you need to wear safety glasses, in case the scale gets into your eyes. I'm not pounding it that hard. You're going to try to make the leaf as natural looking as you can. Once it's painted, once it's painted, or you give it that rust finish it'll look, it won't look nothing like metal. That's basically a leaf.
