The original piece is made of imagination and ideas as well as a physical form. Metal art is an area where home-made and the original is often more common than reproductions because of the size, importance and cost of copying a three-dimensional sculpture.

A form of metal bicycle wall art is a cast. The sculpture is created in clay using clay tools. Clay is used because it is easy to work, cheap, non-toxic and cleans up with water. An artist can craft a sculpture in small space and with basic tools. This method creates maximum flexibility for crafting a sculpture in a home environment. After the clay is formed and ready, the clay has been enclosed in a cast of plaster or a similar material, and metal is poured into casting. This process makes the sculpture to be reproduced many times.
Wire molding is another common metal bicycle wall art technique that can easily be done in a home environment. A base is selected and different gauges of wire are bent and shaped into a shape. The thin thread is easy to bend, and the many different thicknesses and colors make the application fast. This type of sculpture requires a little space and only hand held tools. Artists often use wire buck jigger to help them work wires quickly.
