Aluminium Armature Wire
Armature wire has various uses in sculpting and pottery. Here are some common uses of square armature wire:
Creating Armatures: armature wire is often used to create armatures, which are supportive frameworks for sculptures or clay works. It can be bent into shape to create a sturdy frame that provides structure and support for the clay or other sculpting materials
Supporting Sculptures: armature wire is also used to support sculptures during the sculpting process. It can be inserted into the sculpture to provide stability and prevent sagging or collapsing of the clay or other sculpting materials
Forming Figures and Shapes: armature wire is commonly used for forming figures and shapes in sculpting. It can be manipulated and shaped to create the desired form or structure for the sculpture
Custom Armature Bases: armature wire is suitable for creating custom armature bases for sculpting. It can be used to construct a stable and adjustable base that supports the sculpture during the creation process. Armature wire is typically made from non-corrosive, lightweight, and pliable aluminum. The thickness of the wire can vary, with thicker wires providing more strength and rigidity, while thinner wires are suitable for more detailed work. Overall, square armature wire is a versatile tool that is widely used in sculpting and pottery to provide support, structure, and form to various artistic creations.
The square is specially made for Tiranti's in four sizes.
