You'll Need. . .
- Some nickel titanium wire (also sold as orthodontic wire, memory wire, and magic wire - try Amazon or Ebay to find some online)
- A flame (burner on a stove is suggested)
- Pliers (hot metal is HOT - be careful)
- Cold water
- Hot water
- Decide how you'd like to shape your wire
- Heat it over the flame until it's glowing red-hot and keep it that hot for a few minutes
- Shape the wire how you'd like it
- Dunk it quickly into cold water to set the shape
- Deform the shape (or shape it into another awesome shape)
- Once you've gathered your friends, dunk the wire into hot water and watch your friends amazement as it transforms!
