No more wire cuts on your pitties!
For years I used hanging wire for my prints and photographs that wasn't coated. I can't count the times I would get those pesky "wire cuts" that really hurt! OOK Framer's Pro Wire is a total revelation! It's so easy to twist and manipulate by hand in those tight places and above all no more Boo-Boo's ! As far as negatives.... Time will tell, but for right now it has a THUMBS-UP by this rookie framer!!!
The best hanging wire
from Charlotte, NC
I paint large format canvasses and don't want a failure. I did hang a really heavy mirror (40+ lbs) and then pulled down and it untied. My solution was to use a framers knot where after you twist it, you slide the end back through the first loop. No slip there at probably 70 lb.My biggest complaint is that I could use a much longer roll. I'm always dealing with leftovers and if a canvas is fourteen feet long, then what?
Its good, but unwinds easier than non-coated
from California, USA
I had been searching for the best framing wire to wire up canvas paintings recently. After looking around for a bit, and using this once, I purchased quite a bit of the 30-lb wire, assuming it was at the top of its class. This coated wire is nice, definitely, in that the coating makes it easy to work with (won't cut your hands, feels smooth, etc)...but, it does indeed unwind easier than un-coated wire, as you might suspect. Is it truly a fairy tale wish to have a smooth coated wire that ties and stays wound just as an un-coated wire? Maybe. I suppose you cannot have the best of both worlds, simultaneously. HOWEVER, I will certainly note that during my search, I have come across a different competitor's coated hanging wire which is much, much better in this department. So unfortunately, "OOK Framer's Pro Wire" has lost the battle, as it unwinds easier. I had about 5 rolls of this stuff, which I threw away. I can't name the competitor, per these review guidelines....so good luck on your search!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Plastic coating is a winner
from San Francisco Bay Area, the Peninsula
Wish I would have known how many feet was in a roll however.
Gets the job done
from Austin TX
Picture wire is fine and the usual excellent, speedy shipping from Blick is most appreciated!

By Simone Ritter Art

the clear coating makes this wire a joy to work with. Very solid and sturdy.My first time using it, but will def. order more- would be great if offered in bulk at dickblick;-)
staple of the industry
Price and performance are A 1
Easy To Use
from Green Valey, AZ
Framing paintings for a prolific painter when I make my own frames means that I need a product that works the first time and every time. The Santa Rita Art League demands paintings be properly wired for hanging and this wire makes it easy to comply with their requirements for framing.
Different hard to work with
Difficult to work with. It is strong but not as easy as the metal coiled wire that twists easy without unwinding.
