I don't use any kind of form to press the steel mesh. I use a pair of pliers and a hammer to smooth out irregularities. Besides that, I only use my hands.

In the process of making a custom designed sculpture I often find myself deeply involved. As a special gift to each unique order, a handwritten note on my thoughts from the process, is placed in each packet.
Because the mesh is transparent, one should keep in mind the background. A light, one-colored background is preferred. I would reccommand to hang them from the ceiling, a bit away from the wall. This way you get a floating feeling of the artwork. And you can obtain fantastic shadows when the work is illuminated. Nylon cord for hanging is always included in the purchase.
