2.5mm steel wire SWG 12       

5 meters approx


Great for use in wire armature projects, the 12 gauge wire is very strong and you will need a good pair of pliers to bend this into shape (craft pliers aren't really going to cut the mustard with this stuff!) You will also need a good pair of wire snips.


I use this gauge of wire in my largest projects ( almost life size hares and foxes) because it allows my projects to be free standing and stable.


I would not recommend this gauge if you are wanting your work to be very posable (i.e change it from a sitting to standing or changing the leg positions) as the wire is quite tough and your work can end up looking a bit odd where it's been bent. However, if you just want to move the head or a tail then it will be fine for this. 


I would also recommend using a bit of parcel tape or masking tape on the cut ends when using this wire, so you don't scatch your skin.


Available in a range of gauges with the lower gauge numbers being thicker than the higher gauge numbers (which are thinner)


***Please note the wire comes from a much larger coil and I have tried my upmost to measure exactly 5 meters so the length is approx 5 meters
