12 Piece Stainless Steel Wax Carving Set
12 Piece Stainless Steel Wax Carving Set
Offered by BargainShop_London
Price: 5.50

5.0 out of 5 stars accuracy at last, 3 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have struggled to find tools with enough precision and precision to sculpt sculpey polymer clay - I believe these little tools are intended for wax carving but are excellent or Sculpey too ... came in a handy plastic pouch and I'm really enjoying using them - stainless steel makes them firm and durable. Great and I highly recommend.

This review is from: 63mm Handrail Bracket - Aluminium
This is a 63mm handrail bracket in aluminium. Can't think what else to add to this. It is what it is. And it is very chunky and substantial so no worries about load-bearing qualities

5.0 out of 5 stars If I loved it..., 27 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Carousel [DVD] [1956] (DVD)
I don't love it. Some of the music is great, the storyline is darker than Oklahoma and it's just .... not as satisfying. The singing I good but it leaves you feeling pretty depressed, on balance.

5.0 out of 5 stars ooooooh! It's brilliant!, 27 Feb 2014

It's an old fashioned, corny, innocent musical but the music (especially the orchestration) is full of surprises with all the usual jinks and turns of harmonic inventiveness

Great piece of furniture - no interior compartment for music but smoothly adjustable in height and has a really 'classy' appearance.

5.0 out of 5 stars The usual excellence, 27 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What can you say? It's Sculpey and it's one of those 'does-what-it-says-on-the-tin' items. If you're not familiar with sculpey, it comes in different forms - soft or hard and the hard is much harder than Fimo but in other respects similar to use: it doesn't have the same colour range, it tends to come in pink or grey but colours are available too. The Sculpey organisation treats things in a different way because it's meant to be a sculpture student product though it's quite capable of providing a good medium for serious sculpture... so their support info isn't aimed at a toy and trinket-making audience, but rather more towards artists, both professional and amateur. It's good stuff. The hard version takes a bit more kneading and then it's perfectly workable. It cooks in an oven the way FIMO does.

Amazing playing of some amazing Bach. If you like Bach ('like' doesn't do it for me) I'd say this is an absolute must

3.0 out of 5 stars Slightly dull, 9 Dec 2013

Again, there's only one piece I bought this for - it's typical of English folk classical genre, a bit chintzy and (basically) dull, maybe - pretty but not exciting ...

4.0 out of 5 stars Bell at his clearest and brightest, 9 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Playing five star as always with Joshua Bell ... I guess I'm not blown away with the original arrangement - very flashy and full of energy, I'm probably looking for more wistfulness, but that's the music itself, not the performance
