SAM ALFANO’S TEACHER – Lynton McKenzie –
Engraving master Lynton McKenzie’s famous instructional videos from 1988. These are the first instructional videos made for learning hand engraving, and it is with great pleasure that we are able to offer them at their original price.
They are both informative and historically important, and have been off the market for many years. They were recorded on video tape in 1988 and sold on three VHS tapes. They were converted to a three DVD set years later. While the video quality is typical of that era, the quality of instruction is excellent with McKenzie going into great detail with drawings and demonstrations.
In his day, McKenzie was one of the top hand engravers in the world, producing exhibition grade masterpieces. He was an engraving pioneer and his iconic style is among the most sought after in the world. He was a perfectionist in every regard, producing flawless engraving and gold inlay. While he works with hammer & chisel and hand gravers, the techniques are easily adapted to pneumatic handpieces.
Thousands of engravers have learned the finer points of hand engraving through the chapters in these videos. Watch and learn as Lynton takes you through basic, intermediate, and advanced engraving including tools, sharpening, basic cutting, repeating borders, lettering, gold inlay, designing, transfers, relief engraving, and more.
