| Step 1 |
Choose a wire form. We chose a Wig Jig wire form.
| Step 2 |
Place the wire form on the bench block.
| Step 3 |
Hold the wire form down with your finger. If you do not feel comfortable holding the wire form with your finger, you may place a small piece of tape along the edge to keep it in place.
| Step 4 |
Hammer one half of your wire form away from your finger or tape.
| Step 5 |
Move your finger or tape to the other end of the wire form.
| Step 6 |
Hammer the remaining half of your wire form.
| Step 7 |
Flattening the wire form has lengthened and slightly changed the look of the wire form.
| Step 8 |
Using chain nose pliers squeeze the wire closer together to get the form back to its original look.
| Step 9 |
Congratulations! You have now flattened a wire form.
