WireForm is a specially manufactured metal mesh that is pliable enough to mold, yet sturdy enough to add structure to clays and modeling materials including AMACO¬Æ Sculptamold¬Æ.
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 to form three-dimensional shapes. Ideal for detailed projects and delicate crafts, it can stretch into tight contours and shapes. The woven wires create a structural grid that assumes different textures as it is bent and molded. The heavier meshes are recommended for supporting sculptures using clay or AMACO Casting Compound.
