Armatures

A skeleton-like framework to give rigid internal support to a modeled sculpture. Such sculptures are typically made of either clay or wax. Armature wire used to build an armature is available in various gauges. A basic linear form in wire can be made with poultry screen or padded with wood or paper if appropriate. The medium is modeled directly onto the armature. (Artlex.com)
