    sculpting by Mr. Alfano

    I agree, it goes over all the questions that have come up for me while practicing my sculpting. The DVD course goes over everything you need to know in order to learn the technique. AAA+++ Sam. Thanks again

    Jura Artgraver engraving machine?

    I agree, that's not always the case, and we shouldn't forget that in reality all you need is a single piece of tool steel and a hammer to get started. I'm intrigued by the pulse graver and would love to try one out someday. But at the end of the day, all you need is something to move the graver...
