"Your video is a very powerful tool to aid the up and coming or any engraver with methods, techniques and opportunity to increase their earning power. I just wish that I had had access to this knowledge 40 years ago. it would have been a great aid in establishing myself as an engraver and making a living from it. The instructions are clear and simple and beautifully illustrated."

"I thought the sculpting section in particular really kicks! Perfect camera angle on that one and you can really see in real time what happens as you wipe the metal with that punch and push that metal precisely into shape."

"If you've ever wanted to know the thought process behind drawing proper scroll work, this is the DVD for you!
After watching this you will better understand exactly how and why the elements are placed in certain and precise locations to achieve a balanced, flowing design. The lessons are clearly demonstrated, carefully explained and are much easier to understand than simply looking at scroll work on your own and trying to figure out why it looks so good and how the artist went about it. You'll learn both in a very detailed yet concise manner. This is the ultimate learning recipe for drawing beautiful scrolls; the only other ingredient needed is your imagination."

making it available, a big thumbs up."
