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.
WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals including Lead, Nickel, which are known to the State of California to cause cancer, and Lead, which is known to the State of California to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm. For more information, go to www.P65Warnings.ca.gov.
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.
