I made this one for my daughter. I turned the vase from a block of Cherry. The flowers i made from a scrap of 2×4 dyed with Aniline dye from L/V. The stems I pruned from the wife rose bush. I took the dead ones as they are dried out. Spray them individually with a fast set semi gloss rattle can. Thanks fer looking.

Mark, if you put a couple drops of rose oil in the vase, they would fool a lot of people.

You have these roses looking so real Mark, you should do a blog for the others to see the procedure. But then again I think you should keep it to yourself. Great work.
