Left the Cameras Home - But Made Due

Forgot my cameras at home, and I was waiting for a friend to come by my studio, couldn't run home to get the cameras.. I started by using my Samsung Cell Phone for the video, then I found a camera I'd not used in 5 or six years to video myself detailing the clay.

Old Time Radio Beard and Fringe

Worked on the beard and the fringe of the leather shirt. I then began the leather sheath for the rifle.

Short Day Plus a Peak at my Instructional DVDs

Cleaning up the medallion with lighter fluid... and waiting for the clay to be picked up by Jim Dolan, who asked me to create it. He'll be delivering it to the foundry... to be combined with the plaque that he's creating for the monument.
I added a review of all 8 of my Instructional DVDs at the end of today's video..

Prepairing my clay for next week, and discussing clays and tools

Dropped into my studio to pre-pair for next week's sculpting. I had to re-supply my clay in my dish pan container. I talk a bit about the type of clay I use, as well as show how to prep it. Then I discuss briefly where to purchase clay and about my tools.
