Sculpture House’s strong, fully adjustable 15” figure armature is hand-crafted from non-staining, pliable aluminum wire with a backiron made of sturdy steel. Its adjustable backiron may be positioned for standing, kneeling or sitting. Its base is Formica on heavy gauge flakeboard or plywood.
Designed and constructed to be proportionately correct, the FA4 figure armature serves as an internal support structure to hold the weight of moist clay, Plastilina or other sculpting materials that will not support itself.
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.
