Copper or steel armature?

Recommended Posts

I've notice some smaller armatures for articulated animals are copper and not steel. Is there a good reason for this?  I'm about to build my own and have more experience with steel. Sure, it can be heavier and harder to bend, but I don't plan on taking my dino camping with me...

Copper is easier to form into a custom shape. If the piece is small, the weight does not require the rigidity of steel.

 

I’ve made both before.
