Metal Sheets and Blanks

Discs, Squares and Shapes

This week I thought I’d do a short feature on a little lesser known product we carry: Metal Sheets and Blanks.

These metal sheets are among our most popular metalworking supplies. Metal sheets and blanks can be transformed into into shimmering and exclusive sure-to-be masterpieces!

Metal Sheet and Blanks:

All metal-working begins with a blank sheet,  and there are so many amazing creations you can do with them.

At Wire-Sculpture we carry metal sheets and discs in Copper, Red Brass and Nickel Silver, Sterling Silver and Sterling Silver Filled.
