Introduction: Wiry Stars

Picture of Wiry Stars

I've made multiple types of scuptures befor. However, one day i made a coil that seemed to impress everybody. All I had done was wrap a paper clip around a pencil and voilà.

Then, I decided, if everybody though the coil was complex well then a star would be extreme complex.

And so, I have made Wiry Stars.

This is for impressing your friends and people who work with you. These are not intended as weapons.

Step 1: Supplies, Supplies and Even More Supplies.

Unless you can understand the first picture, I think that you should look at the other.

Step 3: Build.

Start by unbending the paper clip with the pliers.

Then, bend one off tho an angle, by following you sketch.

After that, bend it up to create the figure in the third picture. The fold should be shorter by 1 millimeter.

Bend it over like in your sketch.

Then, go under the V you made.

To lock it, take the loose end and put it over the last line.

Bend over to create a "pocket" to lock it tight. by creating a loop around the loose end.

Step 4: Enjoy.

Time to impress your buddies.
