So I moved on to a commission to create a wedding cake knife and server from a ornate silver-plated EPNS tray and twisted heavy gauge copper wire. As is often the case with me I decided to make two sets just to ensure that there was a high quality one to deliver. I decided to differentiate between the two sets by adding brass handles to the second one.
Anyway the process started with marking up and cutting up a 30cm 'round' silver-plated tray - this way I can get the most out of a tray. Of course there are a few off cuts that well become leaf forms and other things.
