Using a set of succulent cutters arranged in size order we can create the leaves for the succulent plant ready to be fastened together.

Different sized wire gauges are used for the different sized petals as follows :

  • Small petals – 28 gauge wire
  • Medium – 26 gauge wire
  • Large – 24 gauge wire

3. Dusting the Petals
