Valentine’s Day’s Wire Crafting

February 14, 2016 • English, Random

What’s a better activity for a single on Valentine’s day? When I just didn’t feel like going anywhere outside. When rain poured heavily outside, adding a bit more mellow atmosphere. I just enjoyed myself playing with a roll of soldering lead I found in my toolbox.

Soldering lead is much better than using twist tie or common iron wire since it’s very soft and flexible. Its softness has downsides too. A single wire can’t stand and support its own weight. Also it’s easily break after too many twists.

My first attempt on making a male wire figure: success! My second attempt on making a female wire figure: not so success. It’s a bit out of proportion, especially compared to the first figure.

Lastly, happy valentine’s day!
