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.
You are also provided with set of three wire working tools, which will 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!
Each of the materials and tools provided within the white gift box are wrapped and labelled, for an exciting unboxing experience. Please let me know if you would like a gift message included.
