Описание: This all-new study of miniture lamps has grown out of and far beyond the first book published years ago by the author and her husband. Many (almost 600) new examples and much historical material has been combined into this up-to-date study. Miniature lamps are a fascination to people interested in antiques, lighting, and old homes. The book illustrates a wide variety of lamps by many identified makers. Miniature oil and kerosene lamps, some as diminutive as 2 1/2 inches high, are direct descendants of prehistoric lamps using animal fat and other oils. Since the miniatures which have been preserved are so small that they cannot have provided adequate reading light, their intended function remains somewhat obscure.

Описание: While it may seem easy to paint a three dimensional miniature figure, to do it properly requires a practiced hand and some artistic techniques. Because the figure is so small the shadings and highlights must be emphasized to make the figure seem realistic. Mike Davidson has years of experience painting miniature military figures and in teaching the art to others. Using a combination of hobby paints and oils he is able to create a visual effect that brings life to the cast or sculpted figures. In this book Mike takes a commercially produced casting and takes the reader through the process of assembly, painting and mounting, ending with a figure that would be a proud addition to any collection. Each step is clearly photographed and captioned so that the reader may follow them. While applied to a particular figure, the lessons learned from this book will enhance any painting the reader may choose to do.
