Artistic Wire is permanently colored copper wire coated to prevent tarnishing. The silver plated colors are made by plating the copper wire with pure silver. Then an unique enamel color is applied along with a tarnish resistant coating. The coating is engineered to resist tarnishing, chipping, and peeling and to stand up to coiling, spiral making, twisting, wrapping and other wire working techniques.The silver adds a vibrancy and beautiful high-shine to colors.
The wire is round. With a soft temper the wire is easy to bend.
Some color variation may be noticeable between gauges. Some Artistic Wire hues have a tint range of ±10%.
