Need a strong and flexible armature to hold up your puppets for filming? Bend-D's Armature Kits are the most elaborate wire based armature kits for the best price.
Apply hot glue to glue the included 1/16" wire into place. Using hot glue allows you to pull them out later. Apply the included 5 minute epoxy (recommended) to attach the included wire into the body sections for the best animation experience!
Wrists and hands (including the simple kit) allow you to replace the wires up to three times! See photos at the bottom of this page.
