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.
