Help me keep alive the almost lost art of hand making instruments of deception!! Help me make art!

Hi my name is Rolando and thank you for taking the time to visit my page here on Patreon.

I am a magician... yes you read that right.
I perform and dedicate most of my time to making instruments of deception by hand.

I focus my many and varied skills and "know how" as an artist and as a magician to the creation of apparatus and magician's devices by hand; a dying art form.

Think of me as a magician and artist who carries with him and employs skills such as numismatic forgery, sculpture, design, micro machining, horology, metal smithing, delft clay casting, plastic injection, printing, etching, engraving, pyrography, wood working, metal spinning, hot foiling, leather work, fabric work, and paper craft...

I know it's a strangely varied and quite diverse set of skills that I use and blend together in order to create art and artifice by hand of the very finest quality.

I also use my skill set to make art and related ephemera. (hello...? artist here... lol)

Your support towards my artistic and preservation efforts means a great deal to me personally, as your generous monthly gift allows for my work to continue.

We live in a world of assembly lines, mass production, and poor quality cheap Chinese products that flood the market and make it almost impossible for someone like me to create and preserve the art of hand made instruments of deception in an economic sustainable way.

Your generous support goes towards new materials to create and restore non commercially available tools as well as machines for my studio. Your monthly contribution also goes towards continuous research, skill expansion, education, and development in order to create more beautiful and ingenious art and artifice.

I research, make, device/create, and preserve this almost lost art every single day in my studio.

So please give as much as you can, even if the the minimum monthly pledge is what you can afford.

If you are not able to... please share my Patreon profile with as many people you know who are able and willing to help out with this unusual yet noble effort.

Once again thank you so much for taking the time... thank you for giving... and thank you for sharing.

Growth, giving, and sharing are values I hold deep in my heart, and are the very same virtues I wish to instill within my work to set a guide and example for others.

I am very much looking forward to getting to know you and to share my work with you.
