Sculpting the Female Face & Figure in Wood (Reference & Techniques Manual)
Sculpting the Female Face & Figure in Wood (Reference & Techniques Manual)
by Ian Norbury
Edition: Paperback
Price: 11.89

5.0 out of 5 stars Female face & figure in wood, 6 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a beautiful book, pictures and photos almost on every page. with step by step instructions from taking photos, making drawings, and carving the head/figure shape. The book gives detailed step by step instructions to 5 carvings, 3 faces and 2 torsos. Most sculpture books give pages and pages of endless different equipment, here he just tells you what he used and when he uses it. The book is aimed at both novice and experienced carvers. (I myself felt like picking up a chisel + hammer though not done so since i left school). This is a very good thought out, inspirational detailed book, Ian Norbury is a master craftsman, a MUST BUY!! for anyone wishing to start an interest in wooden sculpting.


Petite Star Zia Footmuff Pink Fizz

5.0 out of 5 stars snug baby, 11 Mar 2013

This for me was a must have! I had purchased the later model petite star zia-x stroller which at the time didn't have a footmuff available. In hindsight the newer model footmuff are slightly bigger both in size and in diameter. However even though they are slightly different in size this still did the trick. The colour is the same as the stroller and the texture inside the footmuff is soft padded and keeps baby toasty warm. Whats more the front can be zipped off so on warmer days baby can still have it as a back rest only and not overheat. It does slip slightly as baby gets bigger but not to much. All in all i wouldn't be without it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thriller night!, 11 Mar 2013

I like these large gothic wings purely for the novelty value and size. Once the packaging is opened you realise how cheaply these are really made e.g felt glued on to nylon. But for a bit of fun once a year or dressing up as a sexy vampire you cant go wrong. These are BIG and certainly will get you noticed. The down side really is the price, for something so cheap material wise, (one of the straps was barely hanging on so i had to sew it) there more money than they are worth. But the sheer size of them are impressive and that's what drew me to them and that's why i like them.

I love this book brilliant for the total beginner, very easy to read and follow. For the total beginner this book is a Must, with reference palette for both adobe photoshop and coral painter. Whats more its written in plain simple English with tips, step by step tutorials and very little jargon. If you want to try your hand at illustration digital art this is the book to buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bloody Fantastic!!, 26 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are a beautiful set of gothic fantasy tarot cards. Very easy on the eyes more Interview with a vampire than Val Helsing in film terms. Each card is clearly written with there names and numbers on the front, however the difference with these cards are cups are (butterflies), swords (crosses), pentacles (flowers), and wands (masks). These are more for the advanced card reader or a lovely addition for any collector of cards. The instruction leaflet is thin and basic without any pictures of the cards to go by, they also refer the cards by there usual names such as cups, wands etc. so would be best thrown away, using intuition instead or using another book for reference. All in all a gorgeous set of cards.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spooky spider aaaahhhh!!!, 10 Oct 2011

Prompt delivery arrived 2days after ordering, came in a nice padded gift box. First impressions WOW! Bigger than i thought but very nice, the image doesn't do the spider ring justice and the purple crystals are more noticeable than on the photo, looks much better in real life. Great for Halloween fancy dress, or everyday wear if your a lover of spiders or a goth. A thumbs up!
