Voici les liens que j'ai trouvés sur ce sujet pour présenter ma démo à Morrisburg sur les armatures, squelettes ou âmes selon le nom donné par les artistes.
Je regette le texte est en anglais pour une fois car je présente ma démo en anglais.
Polymer clay and armatures:
Armatures can be :
My definition is based on Glass attic and my own observations
A strengthening structure left in an object after curing.
It can also be some structures that we can bake on then remove. I would call it a form or a shape instead of an armature in that case.
Types that can be used :
Glass: a bottle, like bottles of hope, a lightbulb ( this one can be broken down later or not) Film canisters or petit four cutters.
Paper: toilet paper, thread spool, or long ones for poster or gift wrapping.
Real (like vegetables) : gourd
Wood: sticks or dowels
Containers: metal, glass or paper.
Cloth: stiffen lace.
Corn starch peanuts, round paper beads ( like Bettina Walker hollow beads)
Each will be shown during the presentation.
