I've been stuck on this stupid question for months haha. How do you fix the armature on the base? and I think you mentioned in one of the videos (can't find it now) that hardware stores have free flooring samples? Mine doesn't so I have to buy some. What would you say is a good thickness of the board for beginners? I can't see myself building anything taller than 10" anytime soon. Would these work well? https://www.amazon.com/Unfinished-4x4-Wooden-Squares-Burning-Engraving/dp/B093KFRVTF/ref=sr_1_10?crid=26J87YEHVAHPL&keywords=cheap%2Bwood%2Bblock%2B4x&qid=1651535486&sprefix=cheap%2Bwood%2Bblock%2B4x%2Caps%2C314&sr=8-10&th=1

Yeah those wood boards look like they will work great for study boards. If it’s a smaller sculpture you might be able to get away with just securing the sculpture to the base with clay. But there are lessons on building a more sturdy armature stand with supplies from the hardware store or you can find armature stands online.

nice! watch the hips so they're not too wide. those might be pushing it once the clay is added. Keep it up!

Enjoyed doing the armature using single piece of wire! I have practiced it and happy with the result.
