Our 907E aluminum wrapping and armature wire, the thickest gauge and heaviest-duty wire we offer, is used for the modeling of life-size figures. Strong, yet lightweight, non-corrosive, fully pliable and non-staining, it is an ideal internal support wire for your clay and/or plaster modeling piece.
Approximate measurements: 3 gauge(SWG); 3/8” in diameter, 10 feet in length.
Use alone or along with our convenient 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.
