I’ve tried the steaming in the microwave method but the veneer just doesn’t gain the elasticity that it needs to wrap to such a small radius. When I soak and bend the veneer it cracks pretty easily. I have found that the species very in how much they will give. It would be really great if someone who ha perfected this process or has lots of experience could photograph or video their process. I don’t really have the tools necessary to heat copper tubing or anything. I just really want to see it happen from start to finish with an end product of the quality I’ve seen on etsy and the like.
Thanks everyone for your suggestions and advice.
