Even in all the packing up and prep to leave you are still making videos for us. Smiley  Thanks!

yep.. just canĀ“t help myself. There is sooo much I'd love to share before heading away.. but it aint goin to be  possible. I do not know what resources or connection, if any, I will have over the next few months you see. You may notice what I am doing now is not very elaborate...and short. But... it helps me keep sane in the middle of everything. (stress levels got to the point of wife in the clinic yesterday... she'll be ok though)

They are traveling back to NZ for a wedding and a short stay.  Can't remember for sure where Philip announced this... Maybe in the Lord of the Donuts thread.

Yes Billy, we finished all my parts as wizard, grey and white, in 'Lord of the Donuts', and then we are packing to head back to NZ til October, and hope to continue with all puppets when we get back, to finish the movie. Going next week. So we have been busy ...but I started a thread 'In Search of the Donut', in  'chit chat', where I hope to keep you updated with Frogo the Lizard, who is coming with us.

Hi Guys, Considering how little space the airlines give you for luggage these days, I did not have space for a normal tripod in my suitcase, so I built this one and have had time to trial it. The first shot in the video is not indicative of its effectiveness. I have used it in airports, beaches, rivers, taken it up a mountain and trekking around a lake, all to good avail. It is light, and you hardly notice it is in your backpack. It is quickly assembled and disassembled, and has done the trick quite nicely.

Hi Guys, another  possible helpful technique  for all you  who need rocks in your scenery  on or off camera...

You Rock! Most real looking rocks yet. Really easy too.  Thanks for sharing your expertise.

Thanks Snail. I did not mention anywhere, that this mache stuff makes things more rigid, so you don't have to do so many layers of paper base, like 3 in stead of 5, or, if you do 5 then it is even more solid and cool.

Great set of tips.  Love the new technique. I notice that your "glue" has color.  Do you add a bit of acrylic paint to the water glue combination or is it simply that you are using the brush that had some paint in it?  The reason I mention this is that I've added color/paint to my glue combinations before just to give me that base color/shadow in things before I paint.

no Shawn, just me being too lazy to wash my brush out... and it doesn't hurt the process as it will be painted anyway.

I would say that in this case it is an advantage. That way if you get a small nick or scratch in the "rock" it won't show up as much if at all.
