Tutorials, How to Guides and other Articles
Over the years I've attended numerous miniature art fairs, model making exhibitions and re-enactment events where I've frequently been involved in demonstrating or teaching about a wide variety of subjects to many amateur enthusiasts and other professionals. Inevitably you find there are certain topics or questions which arise time and time again at each show. In recognition of these commonly asked questions I have tried to find the time to put together the following selection of brief introductory articles outlining a few basic thoughts, tips and techniques to help beginners to get started with different subjects. Whilst I can't afford the time to put together articles about every topic people ask me about, or even guarantee I'll have time to acknowledge individual e-mails, if there are things people would like to know more about which they think I may be able to help with, feel free to make suggestions about future articles you may like to see.
