Nice introduction to wire sculpture. Enjoy.
The fairy kits have evolved from friends taking an interest in my larger sculptures and wanting to try out using chicken wire as a sculptural medium that can be left out in their gardens. I've enjoyed seeing how they have been painted and decorated to make eye-catching features in their gardens.
My background in graphics came in handy in designing the packaging and instruction manual.

POSING YOUR FAIRY
WIRE ANGEL KIT
Create your own 12” Angel in an afternoon. Pose her by bending her arms, arching her back, and tilting her head. The wire is galvanized and won’t rust outdoors. Make her a garden accent or a welcome angel
at your front door. Flatten the back of her dress and hang her on your wall. Pose her in flight.
Add the lights for a dramatic table topper or use her as a Christmas tree topper.
Spray paint her white for added drama.
This angel can usually be completed in under 2 hours.
Enjoy making it with a friend or family member or give as a gift that ‘crafty’ person on your list!
