Specialty Armatures

The Ed Head
Looking for a ready-made base on which to sculpt or display your masks? Well, we've got one for you. Introducing Monster Makers brand new Ed Head, made of hollow, rigid, polyurethane foam, the Deluxe Full Ed Head Armature is suitable for medium to large sized mask sculptures. This new design has partial shoulders and an elongated neck which compensates for latex mask shrinkage. Please note: This product is handcrafted. As such there are some minor cosmetic imperfections inherent in the manufacturing process that do not impact the sculpting process. Most forms have some minor blemishes. The Ed Head is perfect for mask display. To use as a sculpting base we recommend filling the form with White Hydrocal to extend the service life.  Measures 18 in. H x 13 in. W x 11 in. D. Head circumference at brow is 23 in. approx.

Only Figure Armature
These figure armatures are made of aluminum wire and therefore very pliable. They allow the artist to pose the figure before fixing and sculpting the finished piece. As with the other armatures these are anatomically proportional. All three sizes have wire wrapped arms and legs. These are great for stop-motion animation, clay sculpture, Magic-Sculpt figures, wax sculpting and Paverpol.
