Head Armatures are designed and constructed to provide an internal support skeleton for the oil-based clay, moist (wet) clay or other sculpting medium which cannot support itself.
It is made of non-staining, non-corrosive aluminum wire and a sturdy steel post that is attached to a melamine base.
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.
