@ Shawn thanks for co-hosting and looking forward to the next one.....I like your set up and I am planning on getting another webcam for any future set ups for workshops.....I will need to pick your brain on how you do it....I have webcam extra program for a short bit to experiment with it.....however people say I am static most of the time and not moving smoothly.
I agree with Shawn....please star and comment on the site it brings more attention to our site as well as blogtv will advertise it much better as well.......so go and comment and be a freind and subscribe even during the weeks in between it all adds up and counts.  Yes we do a bit of an after show which is fun......Next week NLace (computer name) (hope to be new member here) was showing off his two new puppets he made for the first time......he does an amazing job for the short amount of time that he works on them and he is improving with each new puppet.  Well Nlace has challenged me, I am extending this to all of you out there we have one hour to make a sock puppet after the Thursday show and all we can use is certain material found in your bathroom.  I will be posting the materials list in this forum.  It is all in fun even though I feel my palms getting a little sweaty. LOL  We are both going to be live while making them and anyone else who joins can take a picture at the end of the the hour and post it to show your work after the hour.....so come and chat and watch or make and have some instant fun.


@ Billy thanks for the comments both Na and Shawn did a great job and I am liking the variety that we are being shown stage sets, marionettes, ect.  I agree that some people do come by and TRY to ruin it.....this is hard to get around without making it a "posh" group which I don't want to do.  I thank everyone who helped with operator it really keeps things running smoothly so please don't underestimate your role on our site........I figured out that you can remove the text dialogue from the video if you want.....that is what I did.....so for future shows I will ask the co-host any questions that come up so we can delete the text for the video's. 

@ Miguel and Andrew sorry you missed it but the video's are up and going.....yes Miguel we are not on tonight (Thursday) but back on Thursday night next week same time same place.  I got the pattern and kit as one from www.armslength.com As you can see they are great professional style patterns.....I have altered mine a bit to meet my needs but overall the essence of what you get is there. 

Hope to see many of you next week again and please help with topics suggestions.....they may not happen right away but I have an ongoing list that will be checking off as we go.

Thanks
Daryl H

I would love to see the next step in Shawn's work that he started. Like putting a body to that marionette's head he started for us. But I admit that Vampire Wombat's topic is making me curious.

Very nice show last night.  I especially appreciate the prompt removal of the hecklers.
Shawn, I look forward to you future contributions.
Naomi, Great work on the lego city.
Daryl, once again thank you for making the puppet tv blog a reality.

Just finished watching the video archives. Another great week! This is such valuable stuff, remember to rate it people, stars and comments bring traffic, support and encouragement.
Daryl, I'd LOVE to see how to hand punch hair (I have a particular long term project in mind)
Shawn I've done a similar thing with Fimo over a foam egg covered in Al-foil(to stop the egg completely collapsing in the oven) but the Paper mache/paperclay looks so much easier to work! One questioncan you re work the paperclay if you want to redesign something? Eg. If you wanted to re work a feature, say the nose, can you wet it enough to re work/remove it? or is it a matter of cutting/sanding it off to rebuild it?
Final question, for Daryl, On this weeks archives I was unable to see the "chat," or interactive questions, as I had been able to see in the past. Is that a preference setting to make it easier to record? From the sound of the comments about hecklers I'm probably better off, but it does put more importance on you reading out the questions as they come. You are getting very good at doing that and including it in your patter by the way. The interactive host with the most, a new presentation style for a new media.
Well done, keep it up!

Yes Steve thanks for the feedback and glad that you enjoyed it.....I did cut out the chatter any questions that came up I ask and it is answered.  Yes the patter that night got pretty rude so I choose not to include it.....probably for the future as well if this keeps up.  Most of the time we did not type for the workshop only Newbies who came in were talking and it was just babel.

The others were kept on due to appropriateness and some of the comments and suggestions were kept on for future reference.  This time they did not have to be due to the way we set it up and working around the rudeness.

Thanks

Once the Paperclay has dried you have to sand or cut it off if you want to change it.  You do have some leeway while you are working with it where you can re-wet it and change things. It is drying from the outside in so it gets a skin fairly quick.  I was looking at the times on the video's and I took about a total of 40+ mins in my demo and I would say a good 30 mins of that time was spent working with the Paperclay.  I could have re-wet and re-worked about any section during that time but the top of the head had started drying... that is why it was getting the small cracks I pointed out.

Shawn, thanks for such a comprehensive answer, another question now...
You may be going to do this in another webcast but do you have to seal the paper clay before you paint it? Is it porous? Does it need shelac or gesso primer or can you right ahead and paint it with what ever you want straight away?

I will cover that in another tutorial either on Daryl's channel or my own at a later date but to answer your question, you do have to seal the Paperclay. I use gesso to seal it.  I first do a rough sanding of the face and then about three layers of gesso letting them dry for about 30 mins in between and sanding each layer before applying the next layer.  Fine grit sandpaper, to answer your next question.

Thank you Shawn for all the information. Your video on Daryl's last workshop has started a few ideas in my head. But I will wait to have all the basic information I need before starting. Cant wait for the next part of this workshop (on Daryl's or on your blogTV in a later date).

Naomi, Great work on the lego city.

Thanks! I hope you all enjoyed it Smiley

@Daryl, I'm going to prepare myself to do a shadow puppet workshop. Obviously the next workshop is out, so just let me know when you can fit me on the show again and I'll schedule myself to be ready for it. I'll be offering up a free shadow puppet pattern, so we could definitely do a build-along if people are willing and/or interested. I think it would take about an hour to do.
