18-gauge antique brass Artistic Wire, 30ft (10 yard) spools. Because it's dead soft, antique brass Artistic Wire in in this gauge remains malleable and easy to work with. The exact color of this wire may vary. This color was previously known as gunmetal. If you are looking to closely match our gunmetal findings try the black colored Artistic Wire.

I love how easy Artistic Wire is to work with. A couple of things to note: their "gunmetal" looks more like antiqued brass, and the coating - while very durable and much better quality than most craft wire - it not truly permanent. If you intend to heavily hammer and manipulate your wire, go with an uncoated wire and patina it when you are done.
