"Yeah I wouldn't mind seeing that too.. as I'm thinking of ball and socket armature next... I just  don't like how the wire always breaks with aluminium / epoxy armatures...  How did you get on with yours?   "

I'll be making two more this spring. Here's a picture:…See More

Looking for Armature Inspiration

Hey all, Just asking a favor: If any of you have pictures of armatures you have made, particularly pictures taken before any dressing has been added, can you post them below? I'm just trying to get as much reference as I can before designing my own. I'm mainly concerned with B&S armatures, but would be happy to see any innovative wire armatures too.Thanks in advance,AdamSee More

"Great work! I watched BAR too.  I imagine you have a lot more work tucked away. I'd be interested to learn how you came to be interested in this type of dark humor. The tone in both are spot on. "

Adam Loomis replied to Jonathan Hartman's discussion Recent B&S Armature

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately.I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on this email( mabawuah11@gmail.com ) for the full details,
Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.
Mrs Abiola.
