Now that I have the two heads made in proper proportion to each other, I can made the armature.
Using my proportion chart with the armature drawn on it, I mark the bends on the tube and cut it off at the proper length on the bottom.
This rod is a brass alloy welding rod which fits snugly inside the tube. Welding rods can be found at most home centers, or welding or farm supply stores.
Notice that the armature is attached in front of the demon support rod coming out of the shoulder so the rod can re pulled straight up and out of the tube.
The armature from the front shows how the child's body is tilted to give the feeling of movement to the figure.
The entire armature is wrapped in masking tape to keep oxidation from the wire, foil, and tubing from getting into the clay.
The finished child armature is ready to add clay...next time.
Sorry for the bad photos lately but my good camera needs to be repaired and I am using my old camera with focus issues.
Have a great day!
