Is it a good idea to breakdown a really long instructable into shorter smaller ones? Answered
I'm working on an instructable for angel wings (isn't everyone?). The problem is that it is really long and has many, many steps. So, I was wondering if it might be a good idea to separate out some of the steps into, sort of, adjunct instructables. I don't want to end up with an instructable that's 50 steps long and seems impossible to follow.
For example: There are a lot of steps about feathers, sorting, ironing, cutting, setting, etc. So, I want to know if it would be better to create a separate instructable for ironing feathers, or for cutting and shaping.
Or: Another part is about making plastic cast plastic pieces from a silicone mold. It might seem complicated if all the steps for sealing pieces, making a mold box, and mixing/pouring/curing silicone and plastic are all together in one giant step.
Granted, you'd still have to follow all the directions in the separate instructables, but it seems like it might be easier if some of the more basic instructions were explained elsewhere. I'm all ears for suggestions.
