Arcor Electronics is a leading supplier of craft wire, including aluminum, copper, brass, steel and stainless steel wire. Projects can benefit from the different types of craft wire (including armature wire) which is both highly durable and flexible for use in a variety of applications. We can cut your wire in many different shapes and sizes to meet the requirements of your project, and ship supplies in bulk. Our wiring options provide inexpensive means to supply your craft projects without compromising quality.
Several Types of Metals
While aluminum craft wire is often used in crafts projects, craft wire can consist of copper, steel or brass materials as well. The typical use of craft wire is to form the skeleton of sculptures, providing them with the stability required for an artist to work over them with the sculpting material. Another common use is in the fabrication of jewelry. More flexible options like bare copper or aluminum craft wire are used often in stop-motion animation, providing artists with uses for multiple mediums.
Different alloys of armature wire provide for different needs, with different strengths available for projects ranging from small clay sculptures to larger outdoor wire sculptures. There are many gauges available as well to provide multiple levels of thickness. Claymation and other kinds of stop-motion animation often utilize craft wire because of its simple maneuverability.
Tougher, coiled metals like stainless steel make ideal jewelry as well, allowing jewelers to produce quality bracelets and other accessories easily for both visually appealing and sturdy options.
Customers can order wire for crafts in several packaging options including spools, reels, stem packs and coils of different lengths. Customers can make orders in bulk for ample materials for larger projects, and we can provide different shapes including solid, flat braided or stranded wire, depending on project demands.
At Arcor Electronics, we fabricate the craft wire customers want and require for sculptures and other projects. We will work with you to ensure your orders correspond with craft specifications.
