The armature is such an invisible spine for the clay sculpture, sometimes with crosses hanging on wires. Their role is to keep the clay where it needs to be. Do it wrong – and suddenly a cheek or a breast, thigh or buttock falls off because they had nothing to hold on to.
To paint, you use a primer, which also has to stick to something permanently. It must be like an anchor for a ship. Like a solidly driven hook for a climber.
I have such a defect that I prepare the sub-paintings myself. One day I decided it was time for metal, I just had to prepare it for this. In other words, I have to plough its surface in such a way as to make an armature for it, because then the ground will have something to hold on to.
