the right-hand side
If you are looking for something specific i.e. guidance on how to use a particular material or explanation of a particular making process (and it can be defined by search word/s or phrase such as ‘polyurethane resin’ or ‘colouring silicone’) it’s probably best to use the ‘search for’ box and press ‘enter’ on your keyboard. This will search in all posts and ‘pages’ including the Vocabulary list and will present newer entries first.
If you just want to browse a general subject you can select one from the ‘subjects’ menu, but this will only include the posts (not the ‘pages’). It will also depend on how I’ve thought to categorise the posts.
The blue menu entitled ‘Materials and methods’ applies just to the ‘pages’ and is a more expanded version of the dark grey menu bar underneath the header image. These pages offer more organized and summary information focusing on materials. Unlike the posts these will be added to, perhaps starting very basic but gradually developed.
I’ve now built a ‘lexicon’ and will be steadily working on it (replacing the older ‘vocabulary’). It will provide quick definitions of terms as before, but now goes much further. My aim is for it to include in note form all the information necessary in practice i.e for understanding materials in order to work with them, to grasp the basics of different methods. I am using it as my own quick means of adding to collected info about materials and methods as I find out more. Because I will without doubt have to refer to this continually, it will not be left unattended and will certainly grow!
