To create this interesting garden snail, beside a welding machine, a drill and various hand tools, you will also need scroll bending tools.

Garden snail from metal scrap - Drawing


A scroll is a metal strip or rod that is bent to have a spiral shape. It is one of the most common decorative elements in making items from wrought iron. Scrolls can be hand-crafted, but much greater speed and precision is achieved using scroll bending tools (scroll bender, scroll machine, scroll bending attachment...).

You can paint the snail anyway you like.
