But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

Posted:A Wrist wrap is where you wrap the chain around your wrist (preferrably without getting it twisted as that makes it hard to unwrap)...then you flick your wrists int he opposite direction to unwrap them.

I do a lot of body wraps and find wrist wraps are the hardest to control as it is a smaller wrap surface and the chains tend to tangle a lot which results in a number of burns (wrists are also hard to protect) and scarring.

I have a pretty chain type scar round my right wrist from one such wrap gone wrong...be careful with it....

Posted:good link dragon7, i found that site gave me alot more ideas on how to incorporate wraps. i echo what fenixfyre says too, wrist wraps can be hazardous, although i find them not too hard to control, but wrists are very hard to protect, i have a scar on one wrist right now which very much resembles a 'quick link'.

theres lots of ways in which to wrap poi around your wrist, so you couldnt really explain how to do 'wrist wraps', other than, "wrap them around your wrist". i find its best to experiment and practice. watch as many videos as you can and that should give you some ideas about what is possible.

hope i have made sense, had abit too much coruba tonight.


It took a while, but once their numbers dropped from 50 down to 8, the other dwarves started to suspect Hungry.

Posted:I found glowstringing videos an excellent source for wrap inspiration plus there's a definitive wrap thread somewhere around here, and that's worth a look too. You won't catch me trying full string wraps with chains though, because that's led to a few scars like FenixFyre redface

Posted:Loser, are you talking the Garity brand glow sticks? Those are what I play with and I find a few wraps of clear packing tape around the outside of the sticks prevents them from shattering
