WireForm Metal Mesh

by Amaco

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.

Ask a Question

Will magnets adhere to this?

- Asked by Marlys Jager on 31-Jul-13

This is sold as an armature form for paper mache. Even if it is magnetic, it is probably not strong enough to hold metals.

- Answered by MisterArt on 31-Jul-13

Can I use the metal mesh for cement work?

- Asked by Terry on 14-Jun-13

This could possibly work if you use the heavier mesh with some wire supports.

- Answered by MisterArt on 17-Jun-13

Can this mesh be used with clay and kiln fired? If yes, what cone will it fire to?

- Asked by Dilly on 20-Oct-12

The heavy mesh is recommended for supporting sculptures using clay. The mesh cannot be fired.

This wire mesh worked perfectly for my project, which was to build a medium sized fake boulder. I needed to create something quickly that would be easy to remove for maintenance yet keep Harry, my GSD puppy, from constantly pulling the wires out of the electronic sprinkler controls in my backyard. It's worked out well. I would highly recommend it.
Rated by: Melissa M. in Tuskahoma, OK
So far I'm very happy with this product. I use it to bulk up armatures for small sculptures, and when I cut thin strips of it and wrap it around the core armature wire, it works very well and holds clay to it easily. For this purpose, even the mini-packs go a long way. I used the 1/16 aluminum, but I'm guessing the other kinds would work just as well, depending on what you wanted to do with it.
Rated by: Thomas M. in Ingram,, TX
Great product . I use it for many applications in my sculpture.
Rated by: Micah S. in Bluff City, TN
This metal mesh is really easy to cut and shape and it's perfect for armature work with the many sculptures I'm working on. I highly recommend it.
Rated by: Susan E. in burlington, WI
This stuff is great. It can be used for as many arts & crafts projects as your imagination will dream up. It's flexible, strong, great quality and value.
Rated by: Jo Beth H. in Nottingham, MD
This is a quality item; it is sturdy. I bought two different sizes and am in the process of experimenting with both of them. I am going to use them in my acylic painting. Between uses, it will be cleaned and reused or I can make it into a bridge or a fence in my art piece.
Rated by: Valerie M. in Nampa, ID
Great stuff! Takes on complex shapes and contours and holds the shape exactly. It's also very pliable and easy to work with.
Rated by: Sherri T. in Geneva, NY
I purchased the mesh for my mother-in-law who is working on a picture frame project. She said the mesh was easy to work with.
Rated by: james .jr. C. in St. Louis, MO
Recieved mesh in good order, in excellent turnover time, Product was everything described and shall suit my purpose with ruthless abandon.
