head_armature

Head Armature – 5/8-Life Size – 15″

$34.00

This strong, adjustable 15” head armature serves as your internal support framework for modeling with sculpting materials that cannot support their own bulk, typically if you are using more than 5 lbs. of modeling material. Our armature is designed for models that will be 5/8th-life size and includes the head and partial neck.
It is built of non-staining, non-corrosive aluminum wire with a steel backiron that is attached to a Formica base over heavy gauge plywood.

If using moist (ceramic/pottery) clay, please note, the armature cannot be put in a kiln during firing. The clay will shrink but the wire will not, resulting in cracking and/or breakage. We suggest using a wet and twisted newspaper armature as the paper will burn off during firing; or a wax armature as the wax will melt during firing.

head_armature 20inches

Head Armature – Life Size – 20″

$42.00

If you are sculpting a life-size head and, therefore, using over 5 lbs. of clay, our 20″ adjustable head armature is a must have. It is designed and constructed to provide an internal support skeleton for the Plastilina, moist clay or other sculpting medium which cannot support itself.
It is made of non-staining, non-corrosive aluminum wire and a sturdy steel backiron that is attached to a Formica base over heavy gauge plywood.

If using moist (ceramic/pottery) clay, please note, the armature cannot be put in a kiln during firing. The clay will shrink but the wire will not, resulting in cracking and/or breakage. We suggest using a wet and twisted newspaper armature as the paper will burn off during firing; or a wax armature as the wax will melt during firing.

head_bust_armature

Head-Bust Armature – 24″

$72.00

If you are sculpting with more than 5 lbs. of Plastilina, moist clay or other sculpting medium, an armature is a necessity to serve as the internal support frame for your piece since the modeling material cannot support itself.
Of all the head armatures, the head-bust armature is the most widely used and includes the head, neck and portion of the shoulders (bust). Our 24″ head-bust armature is constructed of strong, yet pliable, aluminum wire that is supported with a heavy duty steel backiron and cross bar that makes up the lower portion of the bust.

This non-corrosive and non-staining wire armature is securely attached to a base of Formica over heavy gauge plywood.

If using moist (ceramic/pottery) clay, please note, the armature cannot be put in a kiln during firing. The clay will shrink but the wire will not, resulting in cracking and/or breakage. We suggest using a wet and twisted newspaper armature as the paper will burn off during firing; or a wax armature as the wax will melt during firing.
