This kit uses titanium wire. It is a dull grey metallic colour. The hardness of it is in-between dead soft copper and half hard copper wire.
The kit contains two wire working tools, to help you handle and form the titanium wire. Some additional tools are needed as it is not possible to provide these in the kit. Where possible alternatives have been noted in the tutorial, advising how to use bits and bobs from around the house as a wire hack!
The box will be posted out in a jiffy bag, so that the box becomes part of the gift itself. Each of the materials and tools provided within the box are wrapped and labelled, which creates an exciting unboxing experience like opening a treasure chest! Please let me know if you would like a gift message included.
