If you are sculpting a life-size head and, therefore, using over 5 lbs. of clay, our HA4 20" adjustable head armature is a must have. It is designed and constructed to provide an internal support skeleton for the Plastilina, moist clay or other sculpting medium which cannot support itself.
It is made of non-staining, non-corrosive aluminum wire and a sturdy steel backiron that is attached to a Formica base 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.
