This strong 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 HA3 armature is designed for models that will be 5/8th-life size and includes the head and partial neck. Additional wire wrapping has been added down by the base of the neck from the chin so that the collarbone may be included in your piece.
It is built of non-staining, non-corrosive aluminum wire with a steel post that is secured to a melamine base with a recessed lock washer.
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.
