“A lovely kit which is presented very well. Each item is individually package which keeps everything together. Excellent delivery too. I would definitely buy from the seller again.” Received 8 Jan 2021.
“Such a great project – we ordered the dragonfly and robin as a lockdown birthday activity and we loved it – we have never worked with wire before so had to get used to it but it was well worth it. The instructions were clear and the packaging was so lovely, clearly marked with what every envelope contained. It was so nice to have something tangible at the end of a morning’s work, highly recommend! (There were a few tools we did not have, but the downloadable instructions gave plenty of household substitutes and it worked perfectly :-)” Received 9 Apr 2021.
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.
