We have been selling our FantasyWire kits so that you can make your own sculptures for years now, (https://fantasywire.co.uk/shop/product/wire-fairy-8-starter-kit/) (https://fantasywire.co.uk/shop/product/16-wire-fairy/) and this is a must have tool for anyone who practicing wire sculpting.
You will find the density of a wire sculpture will increase rapidly and you will quickly discover the need to use something to wiggle holes though it so you can pass the wire through the sculpture. This tool will come in useful at many stages of creating a wire sculpture.
My father Robin Wight who makes the large fairy sculptures which can be seen at Trentham Gardens in the UK has shared his method of making the sculptures for years.
This is a tool that he found he needed whilst creating his wire sculptures, so he made one!
Spike is approximately 75mm in length,
Total length is approximately 140mm
This tool is extremely sharp so please be very careful whilst using it.
