Scrambled Mess

So, I’ve stripped the cable bare and now I have this to work with…

Then I found this picture on the net…

..and I thought, what if I used thin wire and made it look like power lines. I could make some power poles and have them amongst trees with the word spelled out in the wire. No point drawing it yet until I know if It’s doable or not.

So I bought this and had a go.

And then I broke it.

I kind of fixed it and then put it under some books to try and flatten it a bit.

Even if it works I don’t think I can make realistic looking power poles for this thing. I could buy a model kit that I saw at the hobby store and then paint it but I think it will still look fake. I could turn it into a power cord or something with Photoshop but I don’t think that much manipulation of the photo is allowed.

Here’s what it looks like.

Why did I choose metal? 😦
