About Me

No Fixed Abode, Home Counties, United Kingdom
I’m a 51-year-old Aspergic CAD-Monkey. Sardonic, cynical and with the political leanings of a social reformer, I’m also a toy and model figure collector, particularly interested in the history of plastics and plastic toys. Other interests are history, current affairs, modern art, and architecture, gardening and natural history. I love plain chocolate, fireworks and trees but I don’t hug them, I do hug kittens. I hate ignorance, when it can be avoided, so I hate the 'educational' establishment and pity the millions they’ve failed with teaching-to-test and rote 'learning' and I hate the short-sighted stupidity of the entire ruling/industrial elite, with their planet destroying fascism and added “buy-one-get-one-free”. I also have no time for fools and little time for the false crap we're all supposed to pretend we haven't noticed, or the games we're supposed to play. I will 'bite the hand that feeds' to remind it why it feeds.

S is for Still Working on It!


Re. composition page: I got the free Internet a day early, so am transferring all the off-line edits! Then I still have to re-write the composite section and find all the missing links!

We've seen these before but I think, but I've added a couple? 'Composite' rather than 'composition' they are carved wood with brass sheet or wire detailing and a smoothing coat of gesso (a chalk or gypsum paint) or a thick plaster 'slip'; hand-painted, probably Indian or - certainly - somewhere in Asia.
