Armature Wire:

Most of my sculptures have armatures. The armatures give them flexibility, an accurate skeleton, the ease of being able to wrap wool quickly to begin building shape, and a stable "bone" to keep limbs skinny. The key is finding the right wire for the job...

We currently offer 2 gauges: 12 and 14

12 gauge wire is a nice weight for sculptures over 10". I use it for reindeer, camels, and any other larger pieces. You will get a 20ft coil.

14 gauge wire is perfect for animals in the 6-10" long range. 14 is my most used wire; ponies, donkeys, goats, sheep, etc. This 30ft coil of wire will make approximately 10-12 animals.

I like to wrap aluminum wire armatures with pipe cleaners to give the wool something to grab.

You can learn how to build a solid, efficient, well performing armature by watching any number of the Sarafina Video Tutorials found here:
