Armature Wire - 1 metre

When making a model, or sculpture, you create an armature as a frame upon which to hang the clay. It gives support, especially for extended or vulnerable protrusions like a tail on an animal or an arm on a statue. It is made of aluminium and therefore bendy, although the thicker the wire the stiffer it becomes.

AA-ARM-WIRE

When making a model, or sculpture, you create an armature as a frame upon which to put the clay. It gives support to extended or vulnerable protrusions, for instance a tail on an animal or an arm on a figure. It is made of aluminium and therefore bendy, although the thicker wires are less flexible. 

Please note this can not be left inside a model when firing. As it will melt and damage your kiln. 

Hot Clay tip, use a thinner wire as you can get away with, then pad out with newspaper and string around the armature to almost the full dimension of the sculpture, then apply the clay. The newspaper will make it easier to remove the wire and it will allow shrinkage without cracking the clay.

It come in several thickness and profiles.
