paperclips for printing

i teach letterpress and one of the techniques i teach is wire printing. basically you bend wire into the shape you want and use the wire as a surface for relief printing. one of my students, kim shigihara, used a heart shaped paperclip for her wire and it turned out awesome. plus she gave us all paperclips on the last day of class, which was also awesome.
