Spraying the armature with foam.


The Armature
I begin with the armature. An armature is like a skeleton; it is the foundation and support for the clay. Armatures require extensive planning and are constructed of pipe, rebar and aluminum wire. The armature must be accurate and true to the anatomy and scale of the subject. What is configured on the inside will reflect itself throughout the sculpture.
