Designed and produced to be non-corrosive, lightweight, fully pliable and non-staining, our 3/16” x 10' aluminum armature wire is the preferred clay modeling support framework for sculpted busts and figures up to 24". Our 907C aluminum armature wire will resist corroding beneath your modeling material, including clay and plaster.
Approximate measurements: 6 Gauge (SWG); 3/16" in diameter; 10 feet long.
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.

Each sleek tool has two uniquely shaped ends providing the sculptor with a wide array of cutting, smoothing and detailing options.

Potters can use this product as a removable resist. Slip, trail or brush this directly onto your pottery or over a glaze. Once it dries you can peel it off and apply another layer of glaze or decoration. Apply and peel as many layers as you desire.
You may also use this product to make thin, flexible molds into which you may pour plaster, resins or other substances. Your models and finished pieces may have undercuts since your latex mold will stretch when being pulled away.
Liquid Latex will be damaged if frozen. Therefore, we suggest caution if ordering for shipment to cold regions during the Winter seasons.
