Making a wire ball

Roll the ball between your palms. Start by rolling lightly to make a large loose ball.

Wire baubles

The harder you roll the ball the smaller and tighter the end result.

For a two toned wire:

Pull the wire between the scissors and your thumb as if to curl ribbon.

Hold the wire between the pad of your thumb and the blunt upper side of your scissors and pull like you would to curl ribbon. This scrapes some of the colour from the wire creating a two toned wire.

This is my ongoing creative workbook to research and capture design projects and techniques. You will mostly find ideas for floral art but I will also include some other projects such as gift packaging, cards and even cake decorating with a few lifestyle projects arranged in between.

Everything you see in this workbook was designed, made and photographed by me, unless specific credit is given to another designer.
