Totally need a new thread for this.
I'm doing sculpture for the first time in like, 15 years and I am quite enjoying it, but I have NO IDEA how to source the little bits and bobs that I've seen, would like to use, and don't have names for.
I need tightly coiled wire (like a spring, I guess) in the shape of a cylinder, bendable, ideally posable though this is not a hard requirement. It should be 4-5mm in diameter and looking at the "rectangular" aspect, the coils should be tight enough when relaxed not to let light through. The only reference I can come up with is the tails on those old Slinky dog toys that most of you probably only recognize from Toy Story.
Does anybody have any idea where a ready supply (or at least an internet supply) of that sort of thing might be?
