This strong yet pliable 36" armature is the largest of our figure armatures. A must have if you are sculpting with Plastilina, moist clay or other material that cannot support its own bulk. Think of this as the skeleton or framework upon which you lay your clay for modeling.
Designed by Sculpture House, this armature is made from non-staining, pliable aluminum wire and has a fixed steel backiron on a base of melamine. It is designed to be proportionally correct.
Using a cast iron flange and heavy duty bolt for support, the armature is securely attached to its melamine base. A crossbeam has been added between the backiron and armature to assist supporting the weight of the clay.
The additional wrapping wire around the legs and arms allows for greater adhesion of clay to those areas.
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.
Please note, the FA36 may require an additional 7-10 days of production time.
Made in U.S.A.
