Solder Wire Art

Introduction: Solder Wire Art

About: After being laid off in 2009, I got rid of my car to save money. The difficult transition from a car to a bicycle led me to start Solarcycle and design USB chargers that keep smart phones alive.

Here are some interesting art projects that can be done with a soldering iron, solder, and some wire!

Materials:

QTY Description

1 Roll of Solder

A/R Wire (24 gauge or thinner for easiest soldering, 3 to 4 inch segments are good to start with)

Tools

QTY Description

1 Solderdoodle https://www.instructables.com/id/Solderdoodle-Pro-2...

1 Third Hand (optional)

1 Wire Cutter/Stripper

Simply cut the wire in to 3 or 4 inch segments to start (you can cut longer strips too if needed). Strip the ends of the wire about .2" with the wire stripper tool and place each piece of wire in to each clip of the third hand. Twist and bend the wires in to shape to create lots of designs like stars, hearts, and even stick figures! You can use any soldering iron to do this, but I find that the Solderdoodle is most convenient. Have fun soldering wire art!
