RE: Type of Armature Wire for Models

As you know Sandra, I don’t sculpt much. There was a discussion on on of my cake decorating fb pages about sculpting/ wire. I tried to find the discussion, but couldn’t. Was awhile ago. I do know was a discussion about aluminum wire. Found this, but on a air dry clay site. ….. https://www.susiebenes.com/blogs/airdryclayart/down-to-the-wire-armatures-for-air-dry-clay….. “Aluminium – Aluminum armature wire is the best for sculpting: it’s easy to shape, yet solid. You may find “aluminium wire” in the hardware store, but head’s up: this type of wire does not take to re-shaping very well and may snap if overbent. Wire designated as “armature” tends to be more flexible and can be re-shaped several times over. It’s also why it’s one of the priciest options.”
And found this right from CD…. Using aluminum. https://cakesdecor.com/entries/437-wireframed-figurine-tutorial
Hope this helps. I know how hard it is to manipulate wire with arthritic hands!!
