Copper Craft Wire

Like other metal wires, copper wire performs a variety of purposes, such as hanging wire and grounding applications. Its flexibility allows for effective use in crafts as well, with combined strength and flexibility. Copper craft wire is available in various shapes for your projects, ranging from small pieces of jewelry to large outdoor sculptures. Lightweight and bendable, copper wire is available in a selection of different gauges and packaging types to meet project specifications.

For Use in a Number of Projects

Copper wire for crafts is often used for sculptures, forming a flexible skeleton for projects covered in sculpting material. Its softness makes it ideal for stop-motion animation, allowing animators to shape figures easily. It also cuts with ease when using basic wire cutters. For larger sculptures, smaller gauges provide more thickness, allowing the copper to retain its shape.

Copper is an aesthetically alluring metal that also makes it ideal for jewelry and other decorative accessories. You can paint copper craft wire to give it a different appearance for pieces of art as well, in outside decorations and more.

Several Packaging Options

Standard sizes of 5 lb., 15 lb., 45 lb. and 90 lb. spools are available for copper craft wire, depending on gauge size. Although we have stock gauge sizes, custom sizes are available for special orders. If other standard packaging options don’t work for your project, we invite special packaging requirement orders to help supply you with the material you need for crafts.

Different Types for Multiple Purposes

Bare copper wire is available for basic applications, but copper wire for crafts is also available in stranded and tinned forms, which can utilize several different packaging methods. Tinned copper is available bare or stranded as well. Stranded copper is available hard-drawn, medium-hard-drawn, soft, annealed or concentric-lay-stranded. Soft or annealed tinned copper is also available. The different types of copper craft wires each bring quality wiring to creative tasks.
