Easy Wire Art: How to Make 21 Stylish & Decorative Projects

Easy Wire Art: How to Make 21 Stylish & Decorative Projects is a tutorial guide for dimensional wire sculpting. Due out 13th Aug 2019 from Fox Chapel, it's 80 pages and will be available in paperback format.

There aren't a lot of beginner accessible non-jewelry oriented metal sculpting tutorial books out there. This book addresses a basic need in 'niche' crafting and arts. The included projects in this book are appealing and structurally stable. The included projects are appealing and easily adapted to include beads or other found objects for even more versatility.

The book's introductory techniques, tools and materials sections comprise ~12% of the page content followed by the 21 tutorial chapters. Each of the tutorials include a materials sidebar, basic instructions and information, and templates for wire bending. The book also includes an index as well as a table of contents which includes a gallery listing of the tutorials.

The included designs are very simple and whimsically appealing. The materials are inexpensive and easily sourced. The author has included a number of coordinated finishing/display techniques such as hanging stands and wall art.

Four stars.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
