As a kid in the late '60s, I once made some projects with something I
think was called "wimsey dip". It was a can of thick (like syrup),
colored liquid. It seemed to be made of a sort of plastic. We took
wire, twisted it into loops and dipped them into the liquid. The
"syrup" coated the wire and stretched across the loop like bubble
liquid does when the wand is dipped into the bubble solution (if that
makes sense). The plastic would harden in a few hours. We made
flowers this way, with the plastic film stretching across the loops to
I have a project in mind using wire and would like to try this product
to coat and color the wire. Does anyone else remember this stuff?
Does anyone have any ideas where I might find it?
