Here, I’m going to teach you how to make small wire sculpture armatures that you can use for sculpture, stop motion animation, school projects or just to create fun, posable figures.
Possessing a number of different tools and skills in your bag as an artist allows you to find different forms of expression for your ideas. One of the things I love doing is to create sculptural works.
In order to have a strong and expressive sculpture, the “bones” of a good armature are necessary. Here are the instructions and material requirements to how make small (approx 8–9″) armatures for the human form.
1/16″ gauge aluminum sculpture wire — 1 piece — 44″ long and 1 piece 5″ long.
Enjoy! Let me know what you make. I’d be thrilled to share photos of your work here on the blog, so please send them to me.
