I do, but probably because I don't know any better. Just hardware store ss and tin snips! If you don't know what you're doing, you're liable to try anything! So far, so good!

not sure what gauge this stuff is, but it seems about right for making lips.in fact,i made a few myself back when i got it and they worked pretty well.so if anyone thinks they can use it now or in the future they are more than welcome to it.
