Moving forward on my stop motion project I've been researching ways of building figures. You can buy armature kits, but they can be as much as $150! Seeing as how my budget for this entire project is about $50 I needed something much cheaper. I found a tutorial online and built an armature using wire and epoxy putty, it cost me $8.00. By the way, epoxy putty is awesome and I will be sure to keep some in my tool box from now on.
