Tried my first attempt at a wire tree just before the weekend. I was worried I wasn’t able to do it. If you think of the whole picture it’s difficult to grasp.
A Tree… And all its parts. How do you put that into a 3d Wire model.
Understanding the mechanics will teach you a few things. If not artistically the physically.
Tree 1 – the pot I made it to fit into. I remembered it got broken.i may try to find another or I’ll alter the roots at some point. Made with 1mm standard anodised Bonsai wire. Brittle if you wiggle it too much. 42 strands cut to about 50cm long.
Tools: wire cutters, 12cm round nose pliers
Tree 2 – 0.75mm Copper Wire
Similar shaped tree, but made with copper wire.
