This tutorial will show you how to make a titanium curler using just three ingredients: a titanium cutter, a titanium tip, and a titanium rim.
The curler is made of titanium and titanium wire, which is then coated with the curling compound to produce a high-quality product.
You can use a variety of titanium wire for this tutorial, such as a titanium wire that is 3/16″ thick or thinner, or you can use one of the titanium wire types that are commonly used for curling: titanium wire with a 0.1-inch (1/8-inch) diameter, titanium wire 1/8″ to 1″ (2mm to 3mm), or titanium wire 2″ (5.6mm) or greater.
If you choose to use aluminum or stainless steel, the titanium will need to be coated with an anodizing process to prevent oxidation.
The Titanium Curler Tutorial We will start with the tip.
For this tutorial we will be using a 2-1/4″ titanium tip with a 5/8″-1/2″ center.
It is best to use the tip that has the least amount of flex to minimize any twisting or pulling.
The easiest way to do this is to place a piece of 1/4-inch or less aluminum foil between the wire and the tip, as shown in the picture below.
The aluminum foil helps keep the wire from twisting and pulling.
Now that we have the tip set up, it is time to get the curler set up.
The first thing we want to do is to cut the tip so that it will fit through the center hole of the curlers head.
This is done by first drilling a 1/2-inch hole through the tip of the tip and then using a 1-1,000-lb. hammer to hammer down the hole.
We then use a metal scraper to remove the tip from the tip slot.
The final step is to sand the curl to a smooth surface, using a 320-pound (186kg) hammer.
After sanding, the curled wire is ready to be wrapped.
Here is the curlered wire.
The wire is wrapped in aluminum foil, then wrapped in 1/16-inch aluminum foil.
It was nice to have a curler to wrap, as the wire was a bit stiff and did not feel right.
Once wrapped, the wire can be safely stored away in the refrigerator for up to five days.
We also used this curler for our curling tutorial on the first episode of our YouTube series, How to Make a Titanium Curling Iron.
