Intro: Playing Shapes Tutorial
With this tutorial you'll learn how to make the square, triangle and circle shape. The techniques you'll learn are just the basics, but it'll help you to be familiar working with wires and pliers.
Step 1: Square Shape
Cut 30cm length of copper wire. Using the tip of your round nose pliers bend the tip of the wire to start with. Then use your flat nose pliers to make a few more bends and create angles, forming a square shape.
When you're nearing the end of the wire, make a loop and make another loop at the tip of the wire.
Step 3: Triangle Shape
Cut another wire and bend the tip.
Continue bending, making 3 sides like that of a triangle shape.
When you're nearing the end of the wire, make a loop and another loop at the tip.
Step 6: Circle Shape
Cut the same length of wire. With your round nose pliers make a loop at the tip of the wire.
Grip the loop with your flat nose pliers. Bend the longer wire downwards with your left hand while you move the pliers upward, in a circular direction.
When you're nearing the end make the loops.
