|Ed Walicki's - Mastering the Basics
Realistic Fish Scales Course (238 min. 3 DVD Set) $59.00
Now on DVD, all the competition quality techniques I teach in
my hands-on classes and use in my own work are covered in detail. Learn it all
Unlike my original 80 minute Fish Scale Video done years ago, this video
course contains ALL the information and trick tools I use and teach in my hands
on classes. It's been some time since my original scale burning video,
almost 10 years now. And in that time I have wanted to do a series of new
videos, more advanced than the originals, covering everything I teach in my
intensive hands on classes. This will be the first of many titled under my
"Classroom Series" covering everything in real time from A-Z for competition
quality results. These videos were filmed in my carving studio using the
same tools used in class and in my day to day work in both wood and urethane.
You will learn techniques that until now were only demonstrated in my hands
This video course will cover...
- Scale Reference
- Creating Working Scale Patterns
- Woodburning Systems
- Building Woodburning Pens
- Converting Commercial Woodburning Pens
- Shaping Nichrome Wire

included in this 3 DVD set is a sample casting of the techniques demonstrated,
a source list for the materials and items used in the video, and a coupon for
owners of the original "Making Scale Burning Tips" video to receive 10 ft of Nichrome wire or a $20 Gift Certificate for free when you return the old video.
This same information can be applied to any wood burning
tip you ever need. No longer do you have to get by with what is available
commercially, within a couple of minutes you can create custom tips and pens at
a fraction of the cost. Make your own tips for less than .20 cents each and
pens for under $4 ea. And best of all it's fun to do. In the video I show you
how to create a tip to replicate any scale, creating a curved, raised, and
textured three dimensional scale that is an exact match to the real thing.
This course is not just for fish carvers, wildfowl carvers will benefit also
from the information, making custom burning tips
to fit their applications as well. Tips can be shaped like small chest feathers found on
songbirds. The basic shapes are burned leaving a layered look and then the fine
feather lines are burned in place using a skew shaped tip. Creating a puffed up
look to the feathers. The same techniques can be used for
reptile scales as well.
I know once you see the results you will be
convinced this is the best method to create realistic scales.
