Unfortunately the second session of this part did not seem to record on the nite of the show.  So below you are seeing the first one that did and the three other sessions I did later on my channel.  The three I did on my channel did not really have an audiance and so I did not talk much.  I did have a couple visitors so you might hear me speak now and then. I swear I am not .... what was that... Ok I'll pick up milk on the way home... talking to myself!

Thanks Shawn for the great tutorials........... I have started buying up some things for this project and thought I would share where I'm finding some of my things. If you are like me sometimes I just don't have the time to go shopping so buying online is a good option.

Great list of resources Billy.  Thanks for posting them.  I did want to add that you can buy Creative Paper Clay direct from the manufacture at thier website. http://www.creativepaperclay.com/  It cost about 1/2 the price you find it for at stores or on-line but there is a $50.00 minimum order.  If you are planning a big project this may be the way to go.

I received this book today. I have to say this is a excellent choice in Art books. Not only does it teach you how to mix skin tones in all mediums of oils, acrylics, water colors. It teaches about lighting, shadows, and what skin tones are used for each.
While looking at the skin tone charts.................... my mind could not help from thinking if these skin tones work with paints wouldn't the same or similar concept work with dyes. The basic colors mixed with White are Tan's, red's, orange's, yellow's, brown's, and believe it or not blue.
If you do not have this book.................. you must add it to your list of books to get. I am sure you will love it.................... I do.

Hi Shawn
well I'm back on puppets and stuff having a look around and there's so much great stuff here, I've missed a lot! I shall have to keep a better eye on it!
Are the videos above still available somewhere? I like your papier mache ball joints series, i'd like to see more of the rest of the puppet making Smiley. The links above aren't working for me.

BlogTV got taken over by Younow, so if Shawn or Daryl didn't back up their videos or transfer their accounts, they may have been lost. I believe Daryl put his videos on Youtube somewhere....

Daryl does have a YouTube Channel for StiqPuppets but I don't think he ever got the marionette making series transferred over.  He does have a lot of the other tutorials transferred over though. https://www.youtube.com/user/StiqPuppets/videos  I thought at one time I had grabbed the others that I had done on his BlogTV account.  Let me see if I can find them. If not maybe I need to think about re-doing them when I can find the time. I did transfer the account over to the YouNow site when they bought out BlogTV and some of the videos I did about the ball joint and finishing the head off are there. http://www.younow.com/puppetsandstuff#broadcasts

That's a shame if they're lost, the one I saw was very good. I can't see the broadcasts link, it won't load for me!
Maybe you could do an online course on A for Artistic.. I'm they're latest biggest fan! Smiley
