Take some 1" Acrolite FF material

Flame polish the crap out of it and I mean torch it good.

then take some ethanol alcohol and pour it on the material.

It will literally pop apart into small pieces........quite fun to watch!!!
Funny, I do the same thing with extruded tube to display crazing to my customers. Extruded tube is under such high stress already that a quick polish and one spray of alcohol will to the trick. I always like watching customer's eyes when I literally pull the tubing apart with my hands

As far as wire goes, you get get small segments of various wire sizes at as well. They have malleable stainless steel wire that I use quite a bit.
