CHOOSE FROM:
TINNED COPPER WIRE
TINNED COPPER WIRE is used as accents and detail lines. The wire is coated with a thin layer of solder to match your copper foil or leaded piece. And with the thin solder coating, this wire solders like a dream. The copper used in this wire is soft tempered so it bends to shape easily.

Heavier 12 gauge wire can be used for stems for flowers.
Use lighter 22 gauge wire for fine details on flower petals or cat whiskers.

Tinned Wire is sold in:

TINNED WIRE IN BUNDLES
Many people prefer buying their tinned wire in 12" lengths in bundles. These lengths are "pre-straightened" and are ready to use. Sometimes, wire on a spool will tend to be curly and needs to be straightened, depending on your use.
