Does anyone know what kind of armature Wallace has because from what I've heard it's just a basic wire armature.


Mark the shark Posted: Dec 29th 2007

I don't know either. I'll be checking back on this forum as well!;)

Wallace & Gromit have full ball & socket Armatures according to one of Aardmans books.
Similar to one mentioned in this thread.

you can use metal armatures but don't forget to wrap it with cloth tape it helps the plastsicne to stick well the to the armatures;)

the bunny is furry but they stick the fur to it


Anton1 Posted: Dec 30th 2007

Thanks for all the replies guys. I'll keep in touch.

i use masking tape to cover up my armatures, that works well;)


Mark the shark Posted: Dec 30th 2007

Why do you put masking tape on it anyway?:D


conty Posted: Dec 30th 2007

because i make my armatures out of electrical wire, the plastercine doesn't stick to the wire, it kinda slides around otherwise;)


Mark the shark Posted: Dec 30th 2007

Right. Where do you get masking tape?:D


conty Posted: Dec 30th 2007

any hardware store like B&Q, focus or homebase:)


cavor Posted: Dec 30th 2007

I think when professional armatures are being used P.T.F.E plumbers tape is used, it allows for movement on the joints also it stops any reation between the plasticine and the armature, conty's on the right track I have used masking tape before which does stick well to plasticine.

You can get masking and P.T.F.E tape From most DIY centres
