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.
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); 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.
