Catechism of the Autoculus of Mars
Welcome to De Hoofdwerker!
This page is a showcase of my miniatures and dioramas, which you might have found on Twitter or through my Hephaistos|Studios Instagram. Below you can find an overview of finished projects and commissions, some of which you can still find on my Etsy shop. I am currently expanding my YouTube channel with tutorials, workshops and masterclasses.
Contact? Questions? Commissions? See the webshop, mail me at email@example.com or DM me through any of the social channels! If you are getting a commission miniature from me, I have some “Terms and Conditions”.
