A Different Way to Live Life

Wikki Stix

on March 21, 2013

Wikki Stix, colorful, wax-covered pieces of string that can be bent into any shape, are among my favorite art projects. I frequently play with Wikki Stix whenever my hands are free, and I love seeing what I can make. Some of my creations involve making people in different outfits and locations. For example, on a trip to Paris a few years ago, I made Parisian girls modeled after the girls I saw walking down the street. In addition to that, I have created surfers, hula girls, band members, and so many more. These bendy toys are fabulous, portable entertainment, perfect for restaurants, airplanes, and anytime when you can spare a few moments. I often carry them in a ziploc bag in my purse and pull them out whenever I have the opportunity.

I look forward to making even more sculptures as I continue playing with Wikki Stix; they are a true catalyst for creation and involve a lot of imagination!

Creative challenge:

My creative challenge for today is to make a sculpture out of Wikki Stix or any other flexible materials, such as pipe-cleaners – you’ll be surprised at how many amazing sculptures you can create!
