I am very impressed with this modelling wire. It appears black in the image, but is in fact a generic silver. Made no difference to me, but is worth noting just in case.
This wire is incredibly flexible and malleable. As a doll artist, I use the wire for poseable armatures, and I would recommend this over most others. It is soft and easy to work with, but hold up to a decent amount of bending before snapping. As a test, I always bend a single point back and forth until breaking point. Most wires of a similar type and size last 5-8 repeated bendings. This wire exceeded 20. This durability is crucial to my work, and is very pleasing.
It is worth noting that the softness of this wire means that it cannot hold up great weights. However, simply twisting two pieces together or even 3 makes it substantially stronger and suitable for larger projects.
I would recommend this wire for armatures for dolls or animation puppets, it's soft, easy to use, and wonderfully durable. I would not recommend it for weight bearing, or anything that puts pressure on the wire.
The wire is easy to cut with wire cutters, but as mentioned, repeated bending of the same spot can also work to cut it.
This is a very high quality wire and I strongly recommend it.

I bought this item for puppet making, it was easy to work with. cuts easily with clippers and is good to work over with plaster, clay etc.

Good stuff. Looks thick but very strong and pliable. Exactly what you need for stop-motion. Haven't had it for long but looks as though it will stand up to a lot of work

This was an excellent product and great for making armatures. I will now have to buy the different gauges as I know it's perfect for the job!

It was just what I wanted for some simple modelling. Easy for children to manipulate and then cover with modroc.
