"Model-making: Materials and Methods" focuses primarily on the wide variety of materials that can be employed to make models; those which have been favoured for a while and those which are relatively new. The book looks at how these materials behave and how to get the best out of them, then illustrates a range of relatively simple methods of building, shaping, modelling, surfacing and painting with them. Useful features of the book include: The different uses of models in various disciplines The sequence of making; planning and construction, creating surfaces, painting and finishing Methods of casting, modelling and working with metals Step-by-step accounts of the making of specially selected examples Simple techniques without the need for expensive tools or workshop facilities A 'Directory' of a full range of materials, together with an extensive list of suppliers AUTHOR: David Neat has trained both as a theatre designer and a teacher.
