    Default Tons of Handmade Wireframes from 20 years ago

    I pulled my stuff out of the shed that has been sitting to rust for the past 20 years, re-did them in LED lights from walmart, and put them out... what you see is only half of the wireframes I have... Will get the rest out nextyear.

    Thanks ukewarrier, there was a group of 3 of us that used to make these 20 years ago. We took a coloring book page, transfered it to an overhead projector transparency, and projected the image on a wall and drew it on brown paper, laid it down and got to work bending and welding. There are Candy Canes, Santa and Reindeer, Singing Carolers and a Nativity Scene left for me to re-do and get out next year.

    Those are awesome, I just read ur other post on the Walmart lights, I like them a lot and run them in my show and canít beat the price for LED. How are u connecting the lights on ur frames? because ur lines are impressive on them

    Here is 2 pieces from the Nativity Scene that are 20 years old --- lights have been zip tied as you see here for 20 years... They still work just cutting everything off, re-painting, and switching to LED. As you can see these pieces are RUST CITY!!! I switched to black zip ties as it does not catch the Sun, and make it look any uglier in the daytime than need be!



    What a cleaned up painted Candy Cane looks like ready for LED lights
