This post will not be a tutorial, instead it will be a book recommendation #affiliate . This is a skill that it hard to come by in the wire wrapping world, I searched high and low to find this book and now that I have found it, I am going to spread it as far as I can.
As you know if you have been reading my tutorials, I have been frustrated by the lack of information available about wire wrapping. I think that I have been trying to learn for the past two years and every book I find is either impossible to get or it was written with experienced wire weavers who want to expand their skills in mind. I love books written with beginners in mind.
Using wire to write names and words is one of my goals and it is one I aim to reach.
About the book
I found this ebook that teaches word wrapping techniques and I literally started jumping up and down (we all know that feeling that you get when you find something that you have been looking for for a long time). I have started reading it and I will put a review of it once I have finished and once I have tried all of their techniques.
This book teaches you which tools you need to use and how to use them including grip techniques, looping techniques and forming techniques. You will also be taught how to form words and how to add a heart embellishment to the end of the word.. It also teaches you how to make special loops. It has everything and it is ordered so that you add on to each skill that you learn.
You can get the book here. Learn how to write with wire now. I know that it will be a great skill to have.
