    Center Post Bases are specialized display mounts which hold items from below. They are best used to hold hollow or concave objects, such as shells. These are often used in conjunction with ethafoam in order to hold artistic objects more securely.


    All bases are 1/2" tall and made of acrylic. They come in three types: 3"x3" semi-flat black, 3"x3" clear, and 16"x4" semi-flat black.


    All posts are 5" tall and made of 3/16" metal. They are difficult to bend, and should be bent with pliers, which are found on the Mount Making Supplies page.

    Custom Armatures:

    Sometimes a custom sized armature fulfills your needs more effectively than a standard one. You might want a larger or smaller armature, or maybe you need a stronger or more delicate upright. Whatever your needs may be, we can customize or custom build an armature for you.
