If I'm using metal wires as frames for my RKT figurines, and I wrap them in floral tape first so there's no metal showing or coming into contact with the RKTs, am I good? Not planning on handing out the RKTs to people to eat, but just want to make sure no kiddos will sneak one before I collect them all and get a mouthful of possibly tainted RKT icon_smile.gif.

Never done wires as frames before! Thanks for your help!

I usually use sucker sticks for this.

no floral tape. so sorry. some tape has latex, which if someone is allergic to can lead to Anaphylactic shock. Check your tape first.
I use wire all the time, but I use lead-free, jewelry wire. Never had a problem with it. and it is pretty inexpensive and available in different gauges. YOu can get it a hobby lobby, michaels, etc.

I actually have lead-free jewelry wire, that's exactly what I've already bought (that and the very skinny cloth-wrapped wire). Forgot the latex bit (silly, since I'm a doctor and see latex sensitivity all the time, hehe icon_smile.gif ) ... thanks for the reminder! I can't use sucker sticks for this particular project, unfortunately!

Thanks, guys!
