Wire Wrap Your Cats
Pick out your favorite cats, cut a piece of wire about 3″ long. Wrap it around the cat’s mid-section, leaving a longer end sticking straight up, and a shorter end around the longer wire a few times.
Form Your Charm Loop
Trim the shorter wire very close. Bend the longer wire at a 90 degree angle. Next, use your round pliers to make a loop. Just above the 90 degree bend, twist your wrist to form the loop, then with your other hand wrap the end of the wire around the base a few times. Then cut the longer wire close. Secure the ends so they aren’t sticking out.
Paint & Gold Leaf
Give your cats a good coat of gold paint. Let them dry. Next, apply the gold leaf adhesive, let them dry for 60 minutes until dry. Apply gold leaf, then sealer. Let the kittens dry for about 15 minutes.
