Does anyone recall the site where Tony Barton described his sculpting process?

It was a step by step through his technique of sculpting one half of a figure in fimo on a tile, then baking it and turning it over to do the other side. It may have been a personal site, it may have been attached to a previous iteration of AB figures. I know Tony's interests are in 1/6 figures now, and that the site is likely gone, but if anyone remembers which site it was I could at least have a rumage though the wayback machine archive.

Thanks in advance.

Yep, that one I found the same way, but the one I am seeking was basically the same thing but with one of his 20mm WW2 figures (British para maybe?).

Haywire has the one of the two that I recall seeing. The other one I believe may have also concentrated on the smaller scale sculpting with FIMO in halves.

He is a very talented sculptor.
Looks like he invented his own techniques too, excellent.

Indeed. I don't know how he manages to sculpt one half of a figure and then the back half separately (and add extra depth to take account of shrinkage in the casting process).

A master.

Fascinating. I can't imagine sculpting like that – doing half and having to visualize how the whole miniature will turn out. And they turn out brilliantly!
Very talented.

Hmmmm. That last link goes to a blank site. Has it been lost to eternity I wonder
