This is the largest shape to which I added the crocheted chain.Below are the smaller shapes which had the beaded chains.
I am not sure it was necessary to add these extras for the shapes to take up the pulp.I will make more"naked" wire shapes to try. As I wasn't certain how fragile the paper would prove to be I gave it a coat of acrylic wax.As you can probably make out the brush I applied it with was not properly clean and has left a pinky colour in places.
There are also some faint rust traces where the end of the wire is exposed,I don't mind that incidental colouring.
This is a close up of the middle of the large shape.When held to the light you can still make out the wire structure which is good ,as I intend to have them hanging freely in the piece.
