    1. Thanks, Marlene! I think the secret is using thicker wire. I found that thinner wire, because it’s so much easier to manipulate, gets crazy kinky fast, but this thicker stuff has a lot more hold. If you were using wire this thick though the only thing I’d say is work with it faster and minimize number of “moves” haha. The slower I went, the more I’d mess with it, and the weirder the random bends would get.
