Wire Armature Tutorial by Sara121089 Wire Armature Tutorial by Sara121089
Phew!! This took a while. Please Download for full view.

This is a tutorial on how to make the frames in sculptures-from wire to end product! I got permission from :iconkichai: to use their sculpture as an example. :)

I hope you all find this helpful! If you have any suggestions, please let me know. It is my first tutorial after all. If you have any questions I did not answer specifically, shoot me a note! Thank you all!

Great tutorial!!! But I have a problem when doing the armature:
Every time I try to cover the wire with the aluminium foil, the foils breaks (its very weak!) but the worst is that the foil doesn't get attached to the wire, it slips! So when I put the clay in the foil it is just a total mess... What can I do? >_<

I've heard that taping the foil with not scotch or duct tape.. what is that tape called D:  It's white and sort of fabricy feeling vs all slippery.. Well taping it with that helps keep it in place.  When I had these issues I just sort of smashed some clay around it messily, because once you get some clay layering it, it tends to stay in place (or be much easier to work with)
