Sculpture House Figure Armature 24''

Article number: 33230
Availability: In stock (17)

Our 24" aluminum wire armature is a necessity when sculpting moist clay, Plastilina, and other sculpting material which does not support itself. Usually that occurs if you are modeling figures over 5 lbs. in weight.

Made from non-staining, non-corrosive, pliable aluminum wire with a backiron made of sturdy steel, our armature is strong and proportionally correct. The backiron is fully adjustable and can be positioned for standing, kneeling, and sitting. It is attached to a base made 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.

Made in U.S.A.
