Now THIS is armature wire! I bend it, and it stays there! I put clay on it, and it sticks! It came in a coil, JUST AS ADVERTISED! I am deliriously happy! Really! I'm so happy I'm hallucinating! Make it stop!

There is a certain product I deal with professionally and I install this product. For decades the manufacturer supplied some wire like this with each unit to faciliate the installation. I did not know at the time it was called armature wire. Later they stopped supplying the wire and switched to different installation methods which I found to be inferior, so I sought out a source of the "hyperflex wire". I found Ook aluminum wire at the hardware store. Nice packaging, but the wire broke much too easily after just a little twisting. Finally with research I figured out the thing I needed was called sculptor's armature wire. Found the Amazon listings for Jack Richeson, and the 1/16" seemed about right. Received the product and yes, this is the wire I used to get and the same size. Torture tested it, it performs beautifully. It vastly outperforms the Ook product. I doubt there is a better quality wire of this type.

I really like this wire, but I hate paying for it. It's a nearly perfect wire for building a sculpture armature, but the price difference between the aluminum wire and the steel variety is something to consider. I use this wire in conjunction with a thinner steel floral wire for added strength. This particular wire is pretty good quality and can take several bends (in a general area) without breaking.

I usually just wrap my heavier armature wire with the 1/16, but I will use this for fingers, claws, and other such small details. There's really no substitute for aluminum armature wire.

I use this wire for armature puppets in Stop Motion projects. Very good product. However, you must consider which seller you choose to purchase this wire. The first time I ordered, I did from fineartstore. I ordered 10 pcs. and I have to pay about $8 for S&H. 2 months later, I ordered 10 more pcs., but this time from CreateArt (I thought it was the same fineartstore) and with this company (CreateArt), I have to pay $40 (yes, $40) for S&H. I paid more for S&H than for the product itself. I e-mail for a reclamation and explanation, and they made a credit for $10 (anyway, $30 for S&H is still expensive). I e-mail again to thank the credit, but next time I need to restock, I going to order it from fineartstore.

This is great armature wire for polymer dolls. I used it in a 10 inch doll and it was easy to work with. The item shipped quickly and was well packaged.

It worked great as an armature for my sculpey sculpts. I've never purchased wire for it before, I wish it were a little less wobbly, but that's no fault of the description or the seller, but rather my lack of knowledge. I would buy again from this seller, but would buy a little thicker next time.
