      Micro-Mark Discount code for IGMA   01/29/2017

      Great News for miniature artists!!!! In support of IGMA and the world of fine miniatures,  Micro-Mark the small tool specialists, have offered IGMA a 10% discount on all their purchases.  Buyer gets 10% off all purchases and in support of the Guild Micro-Mark will donate 5% of your purchased price to IGMA Be sure to enter Promo code IGMASAVE16 www.micromark.com Can be used on sale merchandise, but cannot be combined with another offer.  For example if an item is in the close-out section on the Micromark website, the discount will apply. If they discount some items in an email (a special promotion) the 10% will not be able to be combined with that offer.  Time to go shopping!!!

Recently, I was researching tool chests and Lost Art Press came up in my search results.   If other miniaturists are interested in making Campaign Furniture, I thought this book might be a good resource.  It is interesting that Lost Art Press makes their re-issued books available in digital pdf format too, and you can buy it electronically for half price of the printed version... at least this gives us a less expensive option for research.  I have not personally seen a copy of the original or re-issued book and only know Lost Art Press from reading the blog.

Tamra did you notice that they have an excerpt from each book to download for free? It is a feature they only introduced recently.

Thanks for pointing the group to the digital sample; it is great to see a portion of the book before purchasing.  I would like to try that 3 way bolt, too.   I wonder if I can actually go to the store and purchase low carbon, not hardened hardware.

I also liked these instructions...

"You can blacken the hardware, or remove the hardware’s zinc coating using a citric acid solution and let it patinate naturally. The hole in the 1/2" nut is a nice place to add a wooden cap or a small turned finial."
