Have any of you used this wire for any projects? I was thinking of ordering some online but I haven't seen it in person. I'm not sure of the hardness of the wire and how it is to work with.
Such as, does the plated color enamel flake off if you coil it?
Is it dead soft or half hard?

Thanks for your reviews!!!

I haven't tried any colored wire so I can't answer your question, but I just wanted to let you know that Zebra Wire is not the only game in town. The color selection here kicks Zebra Wire's butt big time! (Oh, and the same brands are sold in other places as well, PCE just happens to be the first place I thought of.)

Thanks for the link. That's a really great price on the  artistic wire. I've got some of that at home in the 18 gauge but it's soooo soft. Great colors but the softness limits the use of it for only certain projects.

I'm trying to find a decent brand of colored wire that is more in the half hard range and the color doesn't flake off when coiling.
I didn't know if anybody had used the Zebra Wire brand and new how hard or soft it was.
