I was feeling like my studio was empty without that big mural in it anymore, and I needed something else big to fill the space, so I tapped into my inner studio artist and a 30 minute project has turned into a four hour This-Is-Not-A-Craft project. Plus, I wanted it big enough to fill the space above my bed, because I can't hang anything heavy there since I live basically on top of the San Andreas Fault.
In the other tutorial they had a foam mold, and molds don't come in swee spiral shapes, so insead I had to make my own out of wire. I used copper wire because we have a lot of this around (my Father also has his own this-is-not-a-craft, but for engineers, where he tries to place a ham radio inside of every empty container you leave around the house, from altoids, to fishing poles, to the entire computer room. This is why we have lots of copper wire)
this is me using copper wire as really big chopsticks. That should be a new fad: really big chopsticks. Anyways, since I needed two for the size of this piece, I clamped them down in our sautering area (we are nerds we have a sautering area. Usaully for chip-boards, I'm the only one that uses it for art)
