Our 907D aluminum armature wire is lightweight and fully pliable, yet strong enough for building your own armature for busts and figures up to 3 feet. Its non-corrosive and non-staining qualities make it a perfect internal support for your clay modeling piece.
Approximate measurements: 3 gauge (SWG); 1/4” in diameter, 10 feet in length.
As an addition, you may want to consider our hand-made armatures for the head, head-bust and/or figure.
If using moist (ceramic/pottery) clay, please note, the armature wire 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.
