The details on those armatures are amazing, love seeing those photos. Things to aspire to for sure.
It seems like this thread is the place to be! Nice armature, is that some kind of dinosaur? I wish there was somewhere that you could just walk into and use machines to make armatures. I always feel like I'm betraying my puppets when I make them with wire armatures, knowing that one day they will die and be doomed to my shelf forever. Are there some cheap armature kits around that anyone knows about?
just look in the resources area of this site for armature companies
Don't know where you live but see if there is a maker space in your area that may have access to machinery and they usually have an instructor to teach machining skills
