Found a bunch of pliable forks at the thrift store, only $.30 each!



These are so addictive, btw...

cute! maybe a stupid question but How do you bend them?
And are they real silver (which would be very weird in a thrift store I'd think)? Do you know if I could bend inox or steel ones?

I use two pairs of pliers and bend the heck out of them! It's obviously more difficult for different materials and thicknesses of the forks. Typically when looking for a fork I start by trying to bend the fork by hand where the handle meets the rest of the fork. If this is easily done, It will not be as difficult to bend the rest with pliers. I'm working on a tutorial for this, but I need someone else to take the pics for me as I'm constantly using both hands.
Thanks for all the interest, guys! I'll be sure to let everyone know when the tutorial is done.
