Blick Armature and Sculpture Wire is a soft and flexible aluminum wire that can be used by artists of all ages as a underlying structure for sculptures, wall decorations, and more.
Available in a variety of thicknesses, this lightweight wire is ideal as an armature for clay, papier mâché, and plaster roll sculptures. Non-staining and non-corrosive, its pliability and low cost also make it great for classroom projects.
Note — The finer the wire, the larger the gauge.

Comments about Armature Wire:
I have been purchasing this aluminum wire for a sixth grade art class project for 2 years. We make dynamic wire figure sculptures. It's easy to bend, cut and shape. Can also be re-worked with out too much hassle. The students look forward to the experience and most are very successful! :)
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I used the 6 gauge to create spiral forms which I fastened an LED rope lightand suspended it from the ceiling. I enjoyed working with the wire and found itcomfortable to use to form spirals.
9 gauge sculpture wire
from Clearwater florida
I use this wire for wrapping and decorating some glasses and serving utinsils. It is not to hard to manipulate and it resists marring. I love it. Only con is that it is sometimes really hatd to remove the cellophane wrapping.

Blick is my go-to for supplies. Shipping is always quick and prices are great.
Easy to work with
from Charlottesville, VA
Surprisingly easy to work with, for me and for my students. We used this and other armature wire in various gauges to build Calder mobiles. It was safe and easy for them to use. I do recommend making sure you have a good, sharp pair of wire cutters for the heavier gauges. The aluminum is lightweight, but this isn't hollow wire! Great product.
Nice malleable wire!
from Sunnyvale, CA
This is great wire for a beginning sculpture class. Easy to cut and easy to bend. Only difficulty my students experience is trying to "straighten" the wire or twist out any kinks in the wire. This wire is great for combining with other materials, such as felt and papier-mâché.
The total transaction was a complete and satisfying success.Helena Rousseau
