20" Bust Armature is a BUST!
from New York City
Comments about Wire Armatures with Bases:
The Armature for sculpting broke as soon as one started adding clay to it. It had no reinforcement at the base so it broke. The clay sculpture & armature fell to the floor. Great!! Not.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Good product , however I was disappointed because the base is too small for what I want to do . I want to include the shoulders and even the upper torso and it needs to be bigger fir that .
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I should have set these up before I wrote the last review. There is one factor that has caused me to rewrite my review. There are nail heads on the bottom of the base that stick out, causing the thing to wobble, or to scratch a surface below if put on something nice. The nail heads should have been set in. The rest of it looks good and will serve my purpose.
I have not used these yet, as they have just arrived, but they meet the industry standards and look great!

The 20" Head and Bust Armature is an excellent value. It was easy to assemble and is very sturdy. The price was much less than comparable items, and I am very pleased with this purchase.
Very POORLY built .. CHEAP materials .. .. Doubtful whether it would be strong enough to hold up the clay .. .. It falls so short that it can only be described as .. .. a bit of a "RipOff"!Sorry .. .. But I cannot find anything positive to say about this product.I am surprised that "Blick" would offer this for sale .. .. they do their customers a disservice.

Just like Degas' armatures
I use this for figurative sculpture and had to saw off the arm and leg extensions because I pull it off the armature to fire. It is sturdy enough for 12 inch pieces of work.

I have checked numerous sites for armatures and this is the best price for the same product.
