WireForm is a specially manufactured metal mesh that is pliable enough to mold, yet sturdy enough to add structure to clays and modeling materials. WireForm is perfect for the many modeling and sculptural design challenges facing artists, crafters, architects, and students. A flat piece of WireForm easily transforms into three-dimensional shapes by simply molding, crimping, twisting, expanding, and gathering. WireForm is available in a selection of expandable and woven metal mesh patterns, designed to provide a wide variety of art, craft, and model-making options.
The expandable mesh is made from specially manufactured metals that give it incredible flexibility and strength. Its unique raised diamond strands expand and contract to form three-dimensional shapes. Because it can stretch into tight contours and shapes, it is ideal for detailed projects and delicate crafts.
The woven wires create a structural grid that assumes different textures as it is bent and molded. The hevier meshes are recommended for supporting sculptures using clay or casting compound.
Sheets are 16 in. x 20 in.; rolls are either 5 ft. x 20 in. or 10 ft. x 20 in. Mini-Packs are one 16 in. x 20 in. sheet, folded. Manufacturer suggests using a brayer to remove creases.
