Giacometti Wire Sculpture 1. Hammer 2 holes into the base of a round can (tuna). 2. Make legs from 2 separate pieces of wire. Fold them in half and twist to make stronger. 3. Feed the wire through the holes and tape to make the legs. 4. Twist the legs together to make the torso and extra wires to make the arms. 5. Small piece of looped wire for the head. Wrap the ends to the torso and tape. 6. Start at the bottom with wet plaster and work up so that the sculpture isn't top heavy.
