These are a few of the pdf files (and a few Microsoft Word documents) that I've accumulated in my web browsing. MOST of these are hyperlinked to their source. If you want one that is not hyperlinked or if the link isn't working, e-mail me at email@example.com and I'll be happy to send it to you . Please note that this list will be updated continuously as I find more available resources. All of these files are freely available on the Internet so there should be no copyright issues.

This is my most recent sculpture I have made. I sculpt the original in clay. It usualy takes me a few months to complete a sculpture. When I am happy with the piece, I make a silcone mold of it. With the mold, I am able to cast a model in Urethane plastic. Once it is cast I can clean up the piece and I can airbrush it.
