I am sure this has been asked lots and I have searched, but.... What do people think is the best gauge wire to use for Starburst? I made some and used 26# but they had too much bounce. I do insert these into a straw which works great but just wondering what people have found is best for just a bit of a curve and not too straight? Thanks for your help.

Hi Samikate, I am sorry I don't know the answer to this question.....but very interested to find out as this is what I would like to know also. I have been watching some florist wire on ebay but don't know which one to bid on as I don't know the gauge to use either. Also some wire is simply listed as 'hard' and others 'soft'. Can anyone please help with an answer. I was going to use it also similar for a star burst but would not have the faintest which wire to use. Thanks to all who can answer icon_smile.gif
